A trip to my local farmers' market showcased the season's brightest and best of the season. Yet the cabbages were not the colors I wanted, so I imagined one in something other than ... green.  

Actually, I didn't have to imagine this one, I photoshopped a green one and made her outrageously colorful and whimsical.  I painted her petals without the veins then added them when I was sure I wouldn't back out of my decision.  I'm kind of liking it.  Now I wish I had some bacon, I'd fry it up and make a nice warm dinner for tonight.
