cauliflower

 

Last summer we were in temporary housing, but it didn’t stop the Bohemian from planting in the garden. At the time, he was particularly enthusiastic about eggplant. Months later, and the crop has become legendary in the neighborhood, as it continues to provide a seemingly endless yield. We’re all running out of recipes.

Yesterday we went to visit the old garden site, lush and abundant, and back in the hands of its original caretaker. We are gifted with one of our garden friend’s huge heads of cauliflower. A specimen of fractals in food-form, cream-colored, with purple highlights.

After presenting the cauliflower masterpiece, she stands waist-high in the eggplant patch, their heavy fruit dangling like tree ornaments. Keeping the running joke alive, she smiles holding clippers poised, mid-air.

“Eggplant?”

We laugh and say yes to the precious harvest, all in violet hues.

    1. Thanks so much for the feedback. I’m having fun! The majority of my images have come from that little Canon you gifted me years ago. Yes, it has a macro feature. I’ve loved using it. Lately I’ve been experimenting with a Panasonic Lumix. I probably shouldn’t admit this (sounds very unprofessional), but the reason I’ve been using the Lumix is because we found it abandoned on the road – no one around. I think it fell out of a tourist’s car. Come to discover, it’s actually a pretty good camera and takes nice macro images. That’s what took the shots in this post.
