Why I Grow Brassica

clicky the picky
Because its waxy-velvety leaves collect dewdrops so prettily.
(Almost as nice as onion leaves.)
Welcome to my world, warped as it is.

Very beautiful. I wonder if eggplant leaves will do the same thing.

Alecto: Oh! They probably do, but my eggplant plant is all the way across the yard (sigh) and I guess I don't get over there early in the morning. It's a hard life.

I swear most of the photos in my little folder here are some variant of "dew on brassica," mostly kale. You're not alone in your little world! Purty!

El: Ha ha!
Oh, lord, I'm such a hack.
(This was cauliflower.)

Is that a pear tree I see reflected in the dew drop? Try enlarging it to see!

cookiecrumb said...

cook eat Fret: It's the only lens I use anymore. Too lazy to shift over to the other one (and I like crawling around in the mud).

Michelle: It's like the galaxy pendant on the cat's collar in Men In Black!

Zoomie: I can't make it out clearly, but it has to be the pear tree, because I was in that part of the yard.

Now I'm jealous. I always wanted one of those galaxy pendants and now you have your very own. Humph!

cookiecrumb said...

Dagny: You may be in luck. The jeweler who created the galaxy pendant for the movie is a San Franciscan.

I can confirm that eggplant leaves collect dew & rain drops most prettily.

Gorgeous! I wonder if I'm going to have to invest in a real camera one of these days?
