It's such a commodity. Quite plain. Not something I ever gave a whole lot of thought, until I saw it in the wild. I suddenly realised I had never seen it still on the plant... only in plastic bags and cooked on my plate. Which explains why I was a bit stunned: I didn't even recognise it! It's not a spectacular picture, the focus is a bit shifty, cause it was quite windy out there and the thing kept moving.
