About a week ago I was at the grocery store when I noticed this beautiful thing nestled between the lettuce and broccoli. I had heard of Romanesco before but had never seen one.
I came back a few days later and bought one. I plan on eating it but my main purpose for buying it was to photograph it. This edible flower bud has an amazing fractal-like appearance and is quite striking to look at.
I’ve actually been in the habit of photographing vegetables for some time although I haven’t been posting them here. Perhaps in the future I will. It’s fun to share amazing natural art work.
