Cotton Pickin' Budget

Speak o' the devil (home), last week's 20x200 pick reminds me a bit of it too. This one is in Mississippi ("Cotton Field, Mississippi" by Shuli Hallak), but there are lots of cotton fields in NC. I only ever passed them in my car, but they always fascinated me... how it is that cotton pops out of a plant like that is beyond me. Not quite as beyond me as how it is a plane stays up in the air, but beyond me all the same. I really wanted to buy one of these (and last I checked there were almost 100 left!), but I'm trying to control myself. Isn't it so pretty how the fluff of the cotton mirrors the fluff of the clouds? I shall admire it from afar...
