Oxford, NC Tobacco Field in Flower

Though tobacco is a crop most North Carolina farmers have stopped growing, there are still a few fields here and there being grown. This sketchy sketch is of a field near my home in full flower ready for topping.

I don't visit often enough! Do you know, Lin, I honestly don't know whether I prefer your landscapes, flowers or grandchildren paintings. They are ALL so wonderful.

Beautiful..... I've never seen tobacco blooming, or a plant in fact. Does the plant smell lovely when in bloom?

This is so lush and full of life...just tumbling off the screen. Wonderful!
