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?
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….
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.
Sorry I missed the studios. I forgot all about it after my landlord dropped the bomshell that they want to sell the house I’m renting!!!! Not good timing. Largelasses of wine consumed!!
That’s dreadful Emma! I hope you have enough time to find another place?
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…
Have you eaten it yet? It does look gorgeous.
