Purple crown asparagus

The dark purply-red of this asparagus seemed to be set off nicely by a bit of bright pink raffia I had stashed in the wrapping paper drawer. I’ve never seen this colour of asparagus until this year. I suppose it is a bit of a present, as the season for this lovely vegetable is really short – about 6-8 weeks. About to find out if it tastes as delicious as it looks.

  1. Looks very good, never seen them in that colour (seen white once) so now I have to see if I can find them to try them out. Mmmm, with lemon chicken and roasted vegtables. Very nice water colour painting!!
