Life imitating art

I went with friend Di Binns to the Artsource open studios in Midland today.  We got there early so looked in on the Farmers’ Market first.

Seeing this vegetable, I couldn’t resist buying it, if only for the photographic opportunity.  I think the vendor said it was a “Cathedral Cabbage”.  It doesn’t look like a cabbage; more like a cauliflower.  I’ve googled both and not got a hit so who knows what it really is?

What colour and texture is in this vegetable!!!

Apart from gorgeous.  It’s so much more worthy of a place on this blog than anything else I’ve had anything to do with all week….

  1. It is beautiful! It’s known in the uk as a romancesco cauliflower. Although the ‘net also refers to it as a broccoli. Def cauliflower IMHO. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Romanesco_broccoli.

    Whatever it is it’s stunning! One of the many amazing design sources nature provides.
    Open studios were very interesting, although I don’t think I could cope there without the luxury of air conditioning and heating…
