Consider The Cabbage

From Wikipedia we learn that, “Jacques Cartier first brought cabbage to the Americas in 1541–42, and it was probably planted in what is now the United States by the early colonists, despite the lack of written evidence of its existence there until the mid-17th century. By the 18th century, it was commonly planted by both colonists and native American Indians.”


I’ve been an admirer of magnolias since I relocated to Washington, D.C. from a far colder climate.The blossoms fascinate me because their life cycle is so brief and removed from the tree they wither almost instantly. Also, of course, I think they are beautiful. Fortunately I came across this specimen with camera in hand.
