Wheat Fields in the Past Month — Photos from Missouri Roadtrips

While I have a very deep love of cotton, so deep it guides my Twitter handle and a couple of series of posts here on the blog (cotton 101 and the fabric of our lives),  wheat holds a special place in my head & heart too. I had a great time recently stumbling into some wheat fields. […]
