Georgia is one of the major cotton growing states and these fields in South Georgia were at their best a few weeks ago. The cotton in this field looked to be at least 5 feet tall. Look closely and you will see both white and pink blooms.
First the blooms are white.
Then they turn a pinkish color.
Then the flower withers away and grows into the cotton boll ready to be picked. Isn't that an amazing plant?

On August 21,1995 while on a flight from Atlanta to Biloxi, Atantic Southeast Airlines Flight 529 crashed in a field in the Burwell Community near Carrollton GA. There were 10 fatalities including one who died 4 months after the crash. The people of the Burwell Community errected this monument behind the Shiloh United Methodist Church.. I've always regretted that I didn't take a picture of the church and will probably never be able to go back. This is not my original post. The pictures had vanished for some reason and while trying to redo the post I accidentally deleted it. Since people still come here on a search to see this I am reposting. I hate that I lost the comments .https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atlantic_Southeast_Airlines_Flight_529
