It is a great pleasure to buy beautiful, fresh and locally grown vegetables.
Just like many of the cut flowers that I buy, all these vegetables are from the Farmers Market.
Gorgeous coloured cabbage, brussel sprouts still on their stalk, deliciously pink turnips and two kinds of beetroot. One deep red the other lighter in colour and white with red streaks when you cut it open.
The most striking in shape and colour was the Romanesco broccoli. The head is made up of conical florets that makes a spiral pattern. It is light green in colour and tastes like a mild cauliflower.
We had a delicious dinner consisting of lamb burgers with grated beetroot, steamed Romanesco broccoli and roasted potatoes. Today I found an article with a few more suggestions on how to use the unusual Romanesco broccoli.
••• Fresh flowers will make any room come to life, whether they are large arrangements in a hallway creating a warm welcome to your guests or small arrangements with individual flower stems in bud vases or jam jars on a side table. •••
I love to inspire with creative and fun ideas and show how flower arranging doesn't have to be difficult, complicated or expensive. My philosophy and approach is focused on using beautiful seasonal flowers combined with interesting containers to create simple, quick and easy yet beautiful and creative everyday flowers. ••• My love of flowers has grown into a great passion and being able to pass on my knowledge and expertise is a wonderful privilege. Working with flowers on a daily basis is such a pleasure and to style and photograph flowers - what could be better and who does not love beautiful flowers?
