This field with hundreds of rows of cotton is just feet away from our road. If I go stand in my driveway I can see it clearly.
Just like every other year since we've moved here, the beginning of this summer marked the waiting for the cotton seeds to be planted. When they were planted, I awaited their growth and progression when they were just little green sprouts. And when they were full grown, I became even more anxious and excited waiting for the day we would see the white tufts of cotton blooming and bursting out!
I think cotton is beautiful... and apparently I'm not the only one, because ever since it "bloomed" there have been countless cars of families stopped in front of this field admiring and taking pictures of it ;)
I love the way cotton fields look. They are so light and lovely and fluffy looking, such a bright white, and to me they really do look somewhat like snow from a vantage point like this...
Is it not AMAZING that something so soft and lovely, completely different from any other flower or plant, grows from a tiny little seed in nature?
Have a beautiful day!
