Broccoli in Pink Gloss

A highly questionable source of vitamin… anything (something tells me the FDA would not approve). From the, “Honey… you’ll never guess what the neighbor is spray-painting now!” series of randomness.

    • Hahaha… that’s too funny, Amy! And I suspect you could pull it off, too! Heck… you could probably even do an interpretive dance while wearing it! I have no doubt you would receive rave reviews! πŸ™‚

  1. I am all for eating plenty of
    broccoli but not the pink variety πŸ™‚ lol
    It definitely looks good though
    regardless of the pansy colouring πŸ™‚

    Have a superb
    rest of Monday SIG πŸ™‚


    • It is a unique look, isn’t it, Andro?! Just between you and me I actually spray-painted this yellow… but I decided it looked too natural / just a bit like some very old broccoli (so I cheated a bit and changed the yellow to a pink – because I thought it seemed like one of the least likely colors you would find it being in nature).

      • Your logic ruled the day and with it, you produced this fine example of your creativity, sometimes an artist has to step back from the canvas to truly appreciate the subject, and you have triumphed my great friend πŸ™‚

        Have a brilliant Tuesday SIG πŸ™‚


        • Very kind of you to say, sir! Thank you so much!
          Hahaha… looking at things like this… it might do me a bit of good to step away from the paint-fumes every now and then, too! πŸ™‚

          • Yes I remember once spraying my friends car without a mask on, and you would be amazed at the rubbish I was singing 😦 Still it was cheaper than going to the pub afterwards πŸ™‚ lmao

            Have a superb rest of Hump Day SIG πŸ™‚


  2. I’m fortunate my boys are good eaters and eat their broccoli without a fuss. My daughter, however, may start eating her greens if they are pink! Fabulous edits and brilliant creativity Robert! Best, Robyn

    • That does sound fortunate! I don’t mind broccoli… of course I like it much better submerged in melted cheese (but that’s how I feel about a lot of foods, really)!
      Many thanks, Robyn! I appreciate that very much!

  3. I wonder if more kids would eat their broccoli if it came in fun colors. I like how it looks like a miniature tree, when you don’t see it as a vegetable.

    • That’s a very good question, Patti! That could very well be! It seems like bright color is a fairly typical marketing strategy at a lot of things that are geared towards kids… that might just work!
      Very true! I was thinking the same thing (well, before I spray-painted it, anyway).

    • You guessed right! Absolutely! I did indeed paint this (spray-paint). Gloss yellow, originally (but I didn’t think it looked quite ‘unnatural’ enough, so I cheated and changed the yellow paint pink in Photoshop).

  4. The colour is great and I love broccoli but I don’t think I could bring myself to indulge in this delicacy. Coloured cauliflower seems popular and I find it quite unappetizing as well. I like my veggies the colour God intended them. Don’t I sound right wing! Just about my veggies.

  5. Picture-this……….,
    Went to the Fair
    had Pink Broccoli Floss.
    Stuck to my beard and teeth.
    Sweet nutrition.

    Your post gets the Mid-way grand prize. πŸ™‚

  6. Will never get tired of seeing things spraypainted. Especially this color. We had a garden growing up, and one night, a worm crawled out of the broccoli as my mom was washing it before dinner. After that, the garden got turned into a pen for my 4-H pigs.

    • How kind of you to say! Thank you very, very much! To tell you the truth, I originally spray-painted it yellow (because that’s all I happened to have on hand at the time)… but once I pulled it into Photoshop it didn’t take too long before I decided I liked the pink a lot better on this one, too.

  7. Oh, Robert! I somehow managed to get unsubscribed to your blog. 😦
    I had a bit of a break and I’m now trying to catch up and suddenly I realised I hadn’t any posts of yours in my inbox. So sorry, my friend.

    To the matter at hand: I love this image! You do the most wonderful things with fruit and vegetables! πŸ˜€

    • No worries, S.E, really! You know what’s funny is (although I don’t subscribe to blogs because I get a bit confused by that whole set-up), but I’m pretty sure I’ve set some kind of record for most times a W.P. user has accidentally subscribed and immediately un-subscribed from their own blog!
