what an enlightening post and one that furthers my theory that gardening is anything but "just growing flowers." Green things are connectedness that reminds us who we were, who we are, and if we're fortunate, who we will become. And I've lived in the South my whole life and never noticed the blooms on the cotton but I do love to see the fields in the late summer, looking like we had an early snow...

Thanks, Avril. These connections fascinate me endlessly, too...

Thanks! That's very interesting. I had no idea what a cotton bloom looks like.

Thanks, Lynn. Maybe one of these days I'll make a point of actually going to see a cotton field...I'm thinking it might be an emotionally challenging but worthwhile experience.

OKRA?! Huh.

The leaf shape and growth habit (lanky and twiggy) is almost identical to my annual "sunset" hibiscus (although the hibiscus has a larger and even prettier flower, but which is just as short-lived as the okra flower).
