cotton[tail]

April 21, 2007


What–you don’t know what this is? Why it is, of course, Peter’s tail. Or that is what I decided when I discovered it, in the form of 2 bushes right outside my bedroom window. Perhaps more officially, this is known as a cotton plant–here pictured in the 3 phases I used it as: the seed pod, the opening of it, and the fully opened one. I saw Peter’s Cottontail, as it was right before Easter weekend that I found them, and I was at the time brainstorming for children’s activities. For the bustling family weekend here, I was manning the children’s activity room, and these lovely pods proved to be perfect for turning an average drawing of a bunny into each child’s exciting 3D masterpiece.
