Until I drove the rural roads in Georgia I never really thought that much about cotton. The first time I saw it, I thought it looked like snow. I posted a photo on my Facebook page and northern friends thought it was snow. It is planted in rows, and blooms as a fiber with seeds. After the processing it becomes soft like the cotton is a aspirin bottle.
