The farmers around here actually call it, "Stripping." But, what kind of title would that be..."It's Stripping Time"...Yeah, I really want to draw that kind of people to my blog~not!
Anyway, in an effort to stop acting like most of my high school freshman students, I'll get back to the purpose of my post. Ha!
The cotton fields are bursting at the seams in full bloom and it is beautiful! It looks like snow...really it does. See?
This was taken right before a major storm moved in on our photo shoot Monday evening. A majestic storm, at that. The lightning was all around us and it poured sheets of rain on us. Thankfully, we were already in the suburban heading home.
Now in Texas, I love the cotton fields just as much.
The farmers are busy "stripping" their fields, harvesting the cotton, building modules full of cotton, and bringing their harvests to the cotton gins. It is a fun time of year, when the good Lord has blessed the fruits of their efforts, and the ginning begins.
I snapped this photo with my Iphone while coming back from my morning off-period. Yes, I was driving at the time...don't scold me, please! Seeing the roads lined with tractors and module builders is not an uncommon occurrence.
I've come to really like "Cotton Pickin' Time!"
