I love this time of year. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know – everybody says that. They say it because of the weather. Me? Not so much. I’m a summer girl. Once it gets below 80 degrees I start shivering.
Lots of people have good weather but do they have this?
So, as you know, cotton plants have really pretty pink and white flowers on them. They are very delicate looking. That’s mostly what’s covering the state of Alabama right now – these flowers.
After the flowers come the cotton buds.
After that, comes the cotton boll! Boll as opposed to the bowl like the Cotton Bowl in Texas. And yes, I watched football all dang day on Saturday.
Hi, little guy. Nice to see you again.
I once kissed a boy in a cotton field at night. When he asked me why I kissed him I said ‘it sounds romantic to kiss in a cotton field’
Newsflash: It wasn’t. It was awkward. I think I had been reading WAY too many civil war romance novels.
Cotton flowers, though? 100% monkey free and 100% beautiful.
