Cotton Buds or Cotton Bolls

Cotton buds

Here's one of my shots from the field-of-cotton photo session. Cotton bolls (one site I checked listed these as being "buds", so now I'm not sure what to call it) typically appear 5-7 weeks during planting. I thought they looked pretty neat. So perfectly round and quite pretty in their own way. BUT, they also make me think of the plant from the movie Little Shop of Horrors. :)

they're pretty--i never saw one before, cotton is pretty amazing. you can make so many things to wear with this plant! and blankets.

did Boll Weevils get their name from weeviling into the bolls and damaging them?

Not buds, Thiên, bolls. You had it right to begin with!

It was probably some Yamn Dankee that made the 'bud' error....

Thanks everyone. And Loius, LOL, that's what I get for picking the wrong source when trying to figure out what these are called. You and my hubby saved me!

Dennis, you are so sweet!
