Purple Cauliflower

Look, what I found!
This was quite a surprise, as the plant was left over from last winter to go to seed. It may have gone to seed, I don't know, as I completely forgot about it. This is not a spot where I usually grow vegetables.

So, yesterday I happened to walk past and was startled by this purple beauty!

There is a smaller one.Then two more small ones coming along nicely.
Yum! What a pleasant surprise! :)

We grow purple cauliflowers although I must say the bluey colour they turn to when cooked isn't to everyone's taste.

I love surprise veg! :) They look beautiful.

Sue - interesting, as ours loses its purple colour when cooked. And I always thought that was a shame! :)

Manda, yes, they are the best. :)
