As far as you can see, it's white like snow.
We had family visiting us from Pennsylvania (Galen's cousin and wife), so we took a drive in the country to see the cotton.
Of course, it's very common down here for out-of-towners to stop along the road and snip a cotton boll or two and take it with them. Just a couple of snips.
We continued along, meandering the back roads until we came to the Vollis Simpson's "wHiRliGigs" ~ an attraction you must see if you're in Wilson County. Vollis is our local folkartist. His works are displayed locally and also at The North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh, NC, The High Museum of Art in Atlanta, The Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore, MD, and inner harbor.
We were fortunate that day to find him working in his shop.
He left us go in the back part of the building to look at all of his other works.
