Don't you love those wispy root ends on radishes?  Honestly, I did not notice how gorgeous these radishes were when I purchased them...  I was in a hurry to buy a few salad ingredients and get home.  When it came time to use them over the weekend, I pulled one out of the bunch and couldn't believe my good fortune.  Fresh leaves (no slime), varied tones of red skin on  a plump bulbous root, and to top it all off they all had these long, wispy, root ends... so I saved a few of them for painting.  Simple pleasures certainly make my day.  What makes your day?
