I like math, but I don’t like broccoli. No offense @elaineo.

This is a wonderfully scented Plumeria that I was lucky enough to catch a beautiful Mason Bee grabbing a quick bite for breakfast.

Fingers crossed :D Having to rebuild after losing all my CPs and this is a gorgeous VFT!

See these at the farmers' market during the summer. Haven't ever done a taste comparison with regular brocc. Broccoli is one of my favorite veggies -- raw, steamed &buttered, in an alfredo sauce dish, fried in a tempura battered & a little bit of soysauce , any number of Asian dishes .... I like cauliflower too, though not nearly as much.

Ahhh! This makes me miss mine SO much. I lost mine this past summer. And I literally mean lost. Mine was growing on/in a hanging "cage". Had it hanging on an outdoor plantstand on my balcony. We had a day of really strong winds and when I came home from work it was gone (hanger and all). :o Was no where to be seen on the ground so I'm guessing some passerby spotted it and took it. Considering most folks would have no clue as to how to take care of it, I'm guessing it's dead by now. Hopefully I'll find one again some day that I can get via trade.
