This is the first tobacco plant that I've seen for years. It brings back memories of traveling through the South many years ago and seeing tobacco hanging to dry. This is a unique post which I have really enjoyed.

Reminds me of living in the Carolinas. :) No blooms for me this week. But I did capture some wonderful dragonfly shots in the garden. Come see.

How cool that they recognize their history and display it proudly in their town. I've never seen a tobacco plant, thanks for sharing this for Bloomin' Tuesday! :)


My first tobacco plant! Great idea to show what they are famous for. Super photo! Jean


This is the first tobacco plant I've ever seen. Funny to think they are used as an ornamental. I guess as they brown, one could pull a leaf, crumble it and roll their own. Or maybe not. Perhaps there's a whole process involved, as this seems too simple!


This makes me laugh, Deb. It's just so ... well ... southern, if you know what I mean.

I have never seen a Tabacco plant, I enlarge it to get a better look at it!
Can't believe they would have those cancer plants lining the streets!

Dear Deb,

Glad to see you all are back. :) Like your interesting tobacco thing, we live not too far from a town that is known for their hopps. (I think that is how it is spelled.) It was quite odd to me when they started advertising on the television and radio about their Hop Fest (their town celebration of this plant). I think more towns should have celebrations for plants they are known for. We are, after all, a very fruitful country. :)

I look forward to seeing more posts about your life. :)

Sincerely, - me - (Mommy of two little blessings)


I have three limelight Nicotiana plants in my garden this year and they are so fragrant and cheerful - and they must be a relative of this tobacco plant because they look just exactly the same! They have bloomed and bloomed and I hope to save some seed for next year! So pretty!
