Sprouts that is.
Actually… I had no idea WHAT this plant was when I decided to use it in my Garden Art. This may be one of the last pieces in that series, too. For now anyway. I started working at two (very small) part time jobs, so when you add that to school, things are starting to get hectic.
I’m taking a couple of online classes at the community college until I start playing with “the big kids” at the University in May. Don’t think I’m a cheater, but one of the online classes I’m in right now is an intro to WordPress. I better ace that class or I quit! Not really.
What I’m hoping is that I’ll learn some new secrets that they’ve been hiding from me. You know… cool things they hide in the settings panel; stuff like that. Hey, you never know!
Back to the plant… I knew this plant looked like a GIANT cabbage or something, but I was pretty stoked to learn it’s Brussels sprouts. Apparently the sprouts grow on stalks beneath all of these gnarly leaves. I’ll let you know how they taste if I ever get to eat one.
Anyway, I tried to make it “dreamy” because it reminds me of a rose that is starting to bloom—which seems to be some weird ongoing theme here lately. 😉
And muse is such a great word. I guess ALL of the plants in the backyard are my muses. Anything is my muse. I just need to close my eyes.
