I of course know the ills of smoking. But, I still think there is a unique beauty to the tobacco plant. On our walk recently we came upon a farmer hanging tobacco in the barn. We started taking pictures from a distance when he invited us to come into the barn to take more pictures, and see the operation up close. This is hard work! I remember in past years seeing tobacco proudly wearing its ribbons at the state fair.
Yes, I think it is beautiful too.
