age, youth and stars

"For age is opportunity no less
Than youth itself, though in another dress,
And as the evening twilight fades away
The sky is filled with stars, invisible by day."

Longfellow (1807-1882)

most beauteous vegetables

Have you ever seen vegetables so beauteous? Or as my little niece (who couldn't say the dreaded word) called them, "VENGEtables."

(which, if you a small and facing a broccoli floret coming towards you on a fork, is surely a more accurate word.)

(Also, what's with this floret business? Why does Broccoli get the fancy word that makes it sound like it's from a renaissance court, whereas all peas get is "pod"?)

where AM I?
