Outdoor Wednesday

This is what is growing in my yard this week.  I planted these from one plant given to me, it took them 3 years to bloom andnow they have spread to around 50 blooms!  They are so cute, I grow them by my front porch.

I have decided that for Outdoor Wednesday this summer, I will chronicle my favortie cotton patch.  It's down the road from my house, at the experimental farms and I watch it develop every year.  The professor who does his research in it let me cut some of it a couple of years ago before they plowed it under.  I keep them in a bowl in my living room.  When we got married, he had some shipped to me from south Arkansas to use in our table decorations.  I just love to see a cotton field for some reason.  So what do you think?  Want to see a cotton field go from tilled soil to burst bolls?  Check back here each week.
