Joy and I love to go grocery shopping at this time of the year. The flowers are beautiful and the produce is plentiful and full of spectacular colors. Just about now the green asparagus is perfect. They are thin and tender and such a bright green! But we can’t stop looking at the rhubarb. The color is just gorgeous. Kind of like our red lipstick — LOL!
Rhubarb stalks look a lot like celery with a reddish-purple color and large green leaves. It should never be eaten raw and the leaves must be chopped off and thrown away. It is often nicknamed the pie plant because most people think of it as an ingredient in a pie recipe.
