This gorgeous bloom
is the precursor to a favorite southern vegetable.
Do you know what vegetable?
(This image is available as a print at my Etsy shop.)
Clues: The vegetable is most often green, sometimes almost white;
usually sliced, battered and fried for eating.
Were the clues helpful? :)
NAME THAT VEGETABLE!
I almost missed this little beauty, as I walked along a path on a recent fine summer afternoon.
Something stopped me.
I heard it call out to me.
So glad I was listening!
There is indeed wonder in the beauty of the small!

Here they are enjoying the seed … and sharing with their cousins … white ducks and Mallards too :)
