What Brocolli looks like when you go on Vacation - Flowers!

{Yes. it's brocolli!}
We came back from a ten day Florida vacation to an overgrown garden. The brocolli has blossomed! And it grew as nearly as tall as me, too.  Those "florets" in the grocery store are little buds waiting to bloom. You can still see some unopened florets in this little bunch of brocolli flowers...

I'm thinking of putting some in a vase when I tackle weeding out our overgrown jungle of a garden... Aren't the yellow flowers pretty? I saw a hummingbird visit them yesterday - too cool!


p.s. didn't forget the carrot soup recipe! It's coming up in a new post!


  1. How beautiful this flower is and the shade of yellow and soft green is exquisite. Do make a bouquet

    Have a wonderful weekend

  2. I didn't know broccoli would flower so this was fun to see. I'm busy ripping dead things out of our gardens and putting them to sleep for the winter. I hope you had fun on your holiday.

    Enjoy your Sunday.

  3. It doesn't seem to take long for a garden to get out of hand does it? Hope you had a wonderful time in Florida!


A comment? I'm so happy to hear from YOU!
