Hi Everypawdy and welcome to Flower Friday AND the first day of No Tricks, Just Treats for Shelters!! Today I asked Mama to show you this cool flower looking thing we saw while we were driving through Texas on our way back to California...
This is Cotton!!
It starts in these cool pods called Cotton Bolls...
....and then blooms into this cool soft white stuff!!
Then these big machines pick the cotton and guess what???
They turn it into blankets, sheets, clothes and all kinds of different things!
Most of the old sheets an blankets we are packing up for our trip to the shelter this year have cotton in them!
That's right Rosy...we don't have as many old blankets this Halloween because Mama made a trip to the shelter before we moved to our new house...But we do have a few old blankies!
That's ok Arty, I asked Mama to look on our local shelter's website to see if they have a "Wishlist". A bunch of shelters will have a list of things they need, some even have Amazon wish lists to make it easy peasy to donate!
