A vegetable that's as pretty as a flower. I've never seen white kale before. Terrific find & capture, Mitch. #8584042

Great capture, wonderful dof and color. It doesn't matter what the "real" classification is, you certainly made it such here in this shot! #8584368

Having trouble imagining a bride with cabbage in her bouquet but you have certainly found the perfect effect for this delicate capture with the white vignette. Lovely. #8584585

Michelle Alton 5/2/2010 5:06:26 PM

This is absolutely totally exquisite, Mitch! It is almost a rose...or peony...who would've thunk cabbage! #8584588

Kitty R. Rodehorst-Hanna 5/2/2010 5:32:57 PM

Thank you, Dianna, Sam, Carolyn, Tammy, Jo Ann, Randy, Nikki, Michelle, Kitty, and Tammy. Yep, apparently they do, indeed, use this as a flower. I'd never seen this before either and had to check, first, with an image search, that I had the right name for it. #8591058

I love cooking Kale, and love seeing it as an ornamental item in a flower garden. Seeing this white one, though, beats them all. It's truly lovely, Mitch. #8591064

Mitch Spence 5/5/2010 12:12:34 PM

Hey, thanks, Kathy. When I was looking up images on this, I did come upon a number of recipes using it in dishes too. #8591092

Leslie McLain 5/5/2010 4:12:39 PM

Stunning capture, Mitch. #8591362

Thank you, Leslie and Liz. :) #8597163

Nikki McDonald 10/9/2010 9:25:38 AM

I think this is as lovely as any "flower" image I have ever seen, Mitch. I love the way the delicate pinks fade away softly into white. Good luck with it this time. #8956582

Thanks, Nikki. :) #8956694
