Cabbage Flowers

Decorative Cabbage

Decorative Cabbage © 2008 Bo Mackison

I don’t think a flower can be any prettier than this decorative cabbage. I love the contrast of the purples and greens. Yesterday was the last day of the Dane County Farmers’ Market on the Capitol Square. Happily, the market now moves inside so we can shop in comfort. I love my Saturday forays to the Square, but I’m not fond of getting my fingers frozen pinching the produce.

    I love the way you filled the frame with the wonderful, and colorful, cabbages. And, I agree that no “flower can be any prettier than this decorative cabbage.”

    PS Thanks for adding my blog on your “Interesting Visits” and I am going to add your blog to my “Ever Increasing List of Blogs I Visit.” 🙂

  3. Very pretty. I like the way you framed this. The colors are lovely.

    It’s finger freezing weather here now, too. I was spoiled by all that warm weather we’ve had over the past few weeks. The cold seems all the harsher now.

  4. Wonderful color and detail. Love the textures…

  5. Wow! How very pretty. I haven’t seen cabbage like that. Nice capture, color and detail. 🙂

  6. Probably not good for Kraut :(.

  7. They really are as pretty as flowers.
