ABC WEDNESDAY--"E" is for "eye-catching"






 I just had to get this lady's photo.  She's selling cabbages and other vegetables on the open market near me.  If you've been reading my blog recently, the temperatures have been really high, and one folk remedy for the heat is to place a cabbage leaf on your head....  It has a cooling effect, so they say. Same holds true for nursing mothers who are experiencing bouts of mastitis....though you place the cabbage leaf elsewhere.

See other E's on ABC WEDNESDAY.

It doesn't look like there's much relief from the heat. Any remedy that works!! Kate, ABC Team

She is wonderful! & I thought that was fabric on her head...

Well, she does look fairly cool . . . and this costs a lot less than air-conditioning!

I've not heard of a cabbage patch on one's head. Maybe I'll try it the next time I play golf! :)

Fascinating portrait of a woman who looks as those she has many stories to tell.

I really like open markets like this, when I lived abroad for a year I went to one in particular that had all sorts of folks like this.
