This year is the first I’ve grown cavolo nero in my garden, so I had no idea what to expect when the plants started to go to seed. Certainly not the mass of beautiful and delicate yellow flowers radiating from a slender stem.

And because there is something quite ethereal about the flowers, I couldn’t resist editing a few shots in aged b&w.

Five Minutes of Random (the #RegularRandom challenge) is hosted by Desley Jane at Musings of a Frequently Flying Scientist. 

If you’d like to join in:

  • choose a subject or a scene
  • spend five minutes photographing it – no more!
  • try to see it from many angles, look through something at it, change the light that’s hitting it
  • tag your post #regularrandom and ping back to Desley’s post
  • have fun!

  1. I grew some kale last year and it lasted us all through the winter. In spring it flowered and I was more than happy to leave it to do its thing as the insects loved it. So pretty next to the orange tulips too.
