Last week Mycala took some photos of the radishes she purchased at Fresh Market and I couldn't rest until I had my own bunch to paint! We went in last week and they were out with a delivery expected yesterday. It was worth the wait! They arrived and I carried my precious bouquet home. I did a quick water color sketch and think I'll do the final painting on black.
If eaten, instead of merely painted, radishes increase lust and may actually contribute to spring fever! And there is a plant related to the radish family in Germany that enables those on the hunt to find sorcerers! Unfortunately I didn't read about it until I was back in the states, but if I ever go again I'll give it try. I would love to find a modern day Merlin!
A Filipino legend, the legend of Labanos (radishes), tells the disheartening tale of the damage done by misunderstanding and judgement.
