At lunch today I went out to check on the cotton plants. After all, this is new for me. I wondered if the flowers are like Day Lilies and Morning Glories that only bloom for a day or are they like Black-eyed Suzie that blooms for weeks on end? When I peaked at the flower that was blooming yesterday, I was surprised to see that it had turned pink! A soft and delicate pink with white veins giving it a pin-striped look. The bee knew! It knew that it needed to pollinate this flower quickly because it was only going to be open for one short day.
