Red Leaf Mustard


While browsing the property for some fresh sage for tonight's butter and sage pasta dish, I noticed that the red mustard I planted this fall was still looking pretty perky. I picked several leaves (quite a bite, it has!) for the salad, and decided to sketch it too for St. Patrick's Day greenery (with a nod to purple).

Note to Penny - I couldn't help but be influenced by your swiss chard sketch!

Lin, this is amazing! I had to enlarge it and then look close to see if it was a photo or not!

You really have captured this beautifully, especially with the curled edges of the leaf.

havent looked for a few days, love the trees, your herb patch looks magic and the leaf is great. I wonder if you can get it in Australia, I dont know it. Penny in South Australia

This is lovely - in fact all your your greenery on this blog page is super. And how lucky to be able to sketch with a fellow blogger.
