The Snow of the South - Favorite Photo Friday

Fall festivals with pumpkins, hay rides, corn mazes, apple pie, apple doughnuts, apple cider...and cotton; these are my favorite things about fall. 

Just a short distance past our city limits, the cotton farms look like Mother Nature selectively chose to blanket the fields in a light dusting of snow.  Once you step outside, there is the unmistakable smell of mature cotton.  You can see the powerful modern version of Eli Whitney's cotton gin off in the distance waiting patiently to devour the land.

 Thank you for stopping by and have a great fall weekend!

Christie - Our local cotton is just a bit behind yours. LOVE this time of year!

I love cotton fields! I lived for over 20 years in Arizona, and enjoyed watching the cotton grow, mature, and be harvested along the drive between Tucson and Phoenix. I liked when I could find loose branches along the side of the road to put in a jar in the house. Thanks for bringing a lovely fall memory!
