Cotton



I know we live in the south, but planting cotton in the flower bed in front of this old building near downtown seemed a little odd to me.

Yes that is funny, maybe they like the plants or want to have there own "cottonfield".

SRQ said...

Yes, that is odd. I've never seen that down here.

What could you make with this amount of cotton? I've never seen a cotton plant except in pictures.

I agree. Cotton plants are interesting but not that attractive. Interesting that somebody planted them.

That is odd! I wonder if they are planning to add anything else to the landscape? But what caught my eye in this shot is the sign advertising a Dog Island real estate auction! Kat

And it is such an attractive building, too . . .

Yes, this is quite odd. I like cotton plants, but they are not very decorative for landscaping. Plus I would think they need a lot of care.

Ya, kind of a funny shot.

I know "real cotton" do not .... only as a sweater ;o)

One thing I learned long ago - there's no accounting for the strange things people do. Or the strange people who do them. :-)

Maybe it's a bar and their selling cotton gin?

(Sorry, I couldn't resist that!)

Well, maybe it's strange, but I like it. I've never seen cotton before. I think it's kind of neat just planted there in that small bed. It's different.

Since I've never seen cotton growing, I think it is just fine to have it as part of the landscape.

Do you remember when they used to plant collards around the sign for the Northwood mall?

GVK said...

Wonder why would anyone plant cotton there.

Yep, that's odd, Lois. And I'm thrilled to see it here on your blog. Thanks so much for your visits to mine. I appreciate your support.
