Brussels Sprouts Art

Sprouts that is.

Actually… I had no idea WHAT this plant was when I decided to use it in my Garden Art. This may be one of the last pieces in that series, too. For now anyway. I started working at two (very small) part time jobs, so when you add that to school, things are starting to get hectic.

I’m taking a couple of online classes at the community college until I start playing with “the big kids” at the University in May. Don’t think I’m a cheater, but one of the online classes I’m in right now is an intro to WordPress. I better ace that class or I quit! Not really.

What I’m hoping is that I’ll learn some new secrets that they’ve been hiding from me. You know… cool things they hide in the settings panel; stuff like that. Hey, you never know!

Back to the plant… I knew this plant looked like a GIANT cabbage or something, but I was pretty stoked to learn it’s Brussels sprouts. Apparently the sprouts grow on stalks beneath all of these gnarly leaves. I’ll let you know how they taste if I ever get to eat one.

Anyway, I tried to make it “dreamy” because it reminds me of a rose that is starting to bloom—which seems to be some weird ongoing theme here lately. 😉

And muse is such a great word. I guess ALL of the plants in the backyard are my muses. Anything is my muse. I just need to close my eyes.

“Fool,” said my muse to me. “Look in thy heart and write.”

    Met your muse in Brussels…sprouts, lol! So interesting they are teaching a class on WP. They should give your extra credit since you are already using it. Let us know if you learn any secrets – I won’t tell anyone. 😊

    Brussel sprouts taste great after a hard frost- I suppose where you are that won’t happen? For me they were always fall beauties. Love seeing them as unfolding art.

      Hi Judi! No probably no frost here especially since it’s getting warmer now. Good to know though!
