How can this be?




How can these all be the same thing – a dead thing, a bird, a brocade?

I feel a question attack coming on...you've been warned.

Let me count the ways.

That bottom photo is amazing. Love the colors.

Oh, Susan, I was intrigued by the enigmatic question, but I am embarrassed to tell you that the only concrete result of my research into the images and words of this post is something related to ... broccoli:

"The name (brocade), related to the same root as the word "broccoli", comes from Italian broccato meaning "embossed cloth,"...
(from wikipédia)

Guess I failed while trying to transcend the concrete. Sometimes the insubstantial is very hard to catch! But the attempts always give me something in return. In this case, for instance, I put my mind to work. And God knows how much pleasure I get from doing that! Your blog is a great sparker!

Cheers!

All is reflection of light ad form. Did you know that leaves don't fall from the trees? They are pushed.

what if everything is the same thing?

Cláudia - and Broccoli was named for the farmer, named broccoli, who invented it...it's a cross between cauliflower and something else...a friedn told me, I didn't believe him.

Jude - Well...I don't know...I like the details...

Broccoli was not Nature's (or God's) choice?

God! This should stay as classified information! If my son and daughter find out all the truth about this particular vegetable, I will loose all table's arguments about the importance of eating it ...

I am sorry I cannot add to discussion here about the leaves. I am still stuck in the ground. Hope I will be more ethereal soon.

Leaf me alone, my brain hurts. Nice piccies though!

I was warned--but I found out about Broccoli ---things I never knew. --Plus I was treated to that special multi-purpose leaf. This is a satisfying visit!

The mention of broccoli, of which I eat a great deal, brings to mind the idea of red cabbage, another favourite delicacy which is not really red but perhaps a shade of burgundy. At least I think it was red cabbage. Whatever it was it was a vegetable and it turned the water a suspiciously cloudless swimming pool blue. The effect was heavenly - quite Titianesque. And so into a New Year filled with its many new colours - from neon greens to blood pressure pinks - not to mention the speckled carrot effect ... but I'll leave it there. Prosit Neuesjahr!

The first pic makes me think "alright, alright, I'll talk, just let me down!"

This is a question too sophisticated for the likes of me. Nice pictures though.
