Default Flora Cabbage

I spotted this cabbage in the parking lot when I stopped to take a photo of the hummingbird.

Very nicely done. Love the contrast of the purple leaves and ice crystals.

Thanks for the comments. Normally these things would be dead by now but it has been a mild winter so things haven’t all turned brown. I only spotted the purple popping thought the snow as I was driving into the parking lot to photograph the hummingbird. After I got the hummingbird I walked over and got this photo. 2 hours after this photo it was all under snow. Next week the snow will be gone but it will probably be the end for the cabbage.

Love the colors. Sounds like you have had quite a bit of snow.

I am up in Everett. That is just a little north of Seattle. We are having more snow then usual but it will soon rain and then we will have some street flooding.
