Cotton Picking Time in Alabama

Going to the Mennonite Grocery yesterday I got stuck in a Tractor Parade up Highway 55 in Falkville, Alabama. Three big John Deeres were plodding their way ahead of me so I got to stop and smell the roses on that country road.  There was no one behind me so I stopped to snap a picture of a cotton field.

One of the prettiest sights of fall for me is a white cotton field. They are getting harder to find around here as farm land is sold off and farmers are growing corn and soy beans.   A cotton field always makes me think of the Bible verse about the fields being white unto harvest.

And I have to share this picture I posted last year..

I think this is one of my favorite blog photos of all my years of blogging.

We are off to Chatsworth to check on the little house so I will not be posting until Sunday. But I will be back with some new pictures!  Have a wonderful weekend friends.

Great photos. I am always intrigued by cotton fields, since I grew up with corn and soybeans in all of our fields. No cotton in Ohio. I get goosebumps when I see billboards or signs in fields proclaiming Jesus as our Savior! That graffiti is a great catch! I hope it is still there and not cleaned off!

Can't wait to see photos of the progress on the "little house"!!! Have fun!

Thanks for all the comments Ladies. Falkville is a neat little town and the Mennonite Bakery near there is beyond compare. Leslie Anne, you have to go there and get a sandwich the next time you are in the area. And call me and I will meet your there!!
