An acquaintance has a keen eye for produce (among other things) and has been kind enough to encourage my painterly treatment of his photographs. What thrills me the most is that we seem to see the natural in much the same way. This bounty of turnips could not be any more glorious for their story of early mornings, simpler times, hands pulling the harvest from the dark fragrant soil to send to market. When the divine took a brush to this humble vegetable, it was for us to look upon such things with renewed wonder and breathe in with gratitude the overlooked beauty that surrounds us.

They look good enough to eat. I like your edited image.
Thanks so much – I’ve only recently started to like turnips. Roasted is way better than mashed!
We will have to give them a try that way. Thanks for the tip.
With a bit of oregano and rosemary leaves – yum!
