Way Down South in the Land of Cotton!


 Good times there won't be forgotten!!




We spent a week in New Orleans recently... traveling with a tour.  Lots of fun!  And here...  cotton!  (These plants were spotted during our visit to Destrehan (historic) Plantation.)

What a beautiful plant and simple but elegant flower! I've never seen cotton plants in reality. Thank you!

I've never seen cotton plants either, makes me think of those old Negro Spirituals (can't really say Black Spirituals, can you?)

Glad to see your still hanging with garden bloggers.

It's quite a shock to us uneducated Northerners. Once on a fall trip in Mississippi I though fires were rampaging out of control and the field were burned after harvest....:)
