Vegetable “Flower” arrangement

Following on from January’s “weed” arrangement is a vegetable arrangement. I recently had a cheeseboard at a bar in Piazza Pitti (Pitti Gola –  the link is on the right) and some of the cheese was presented on leaves of cavolo nero (black cabbage). They are great! They have so much texture making the leaf look as though it has bubbles all over it. I brought two leaves home and they looked great alone in this glass jar. I added some walnuts which look pretty good too. I think Uncle Monty said in “Withnail and I” that he found the cabbage much more appealing than the rose. Point taken!
