Pima Cotton Flower
The first blossoms for the year are forming in the cotton. This is early for us for them to appear compared to other years. This flower is from our organic pima cotton.
First comes the square, then about three weeks later the blossom opens as this one is doing. The petals will change from yellow to pink and finally dark red before they wither and fall, leaving a green pods which is called a cotton boll.
Cliff took these photos as he has been in the fields most days lately sand fighting the soil with a plow since we have had good rains recently.
