When were were in Arkansas recently we came across some cotton near some old farm equipment. I grabbed some seeds and am going to attempt to grow it in New England in the spring. First Watermelon, Now Cotton . . . I think I am setting myself for failure.
We were in a swampy area and looked for the Lord God Bird. The ivory-billed woodpecker, last seen in 1944, was supposedly rediscovered nearby. No luck. I was hoping to sell some images to the world, since no one has successfully photographed it yet.
The other exciting thing we did was go to the new Clinton Library. It was very well done and focused on Hope, since Bill was born in Hope, AR. Very inspiring!
