High Cotton - White Bursts of Lint by grammyn

High Cotton - White Bursts of Lint

A cotton boll I had saved from last year's crop for a craft project with a tiny string of Spanish moss attached.

(no I don't raise cotton. l check the edges of the fields after the harvest)
How stunning Katy, I have never seen a real ball of cotton! Beautiful shot and wonderful lighting.

Looks like cotton wool, which has a horrible squeaky texture. what does real cotton feel like kayt??

Love the light and detsils

Great shot, i am sure you will find a way to use it for an art project. I do the same. I use nature’s “waste” such as a fallen palm tree leaves or branches for art work:).

THANK YOU XXXXX I had a parcel arrive today, and to find two bolls inside a true delight!!

Phojo a bit absent today, but I will take a photo a bit like this one if I may, when mood improves.

Is there a best way to keep the cotton? I'd love to display it ornamentally somehow.

@30pics4jackiesdiamond Yay I am so glad you got it and like it! I can't wait to see the photo! I have had those just sitting in a box for a long time and have some others that my sister and I picked two years ago in a vase so as long as they don't get wet I think they will last a really long time however you choose to display them.
