You know how it is...leave a bloke alone with a tea cosy and he will have to try it as a hat...
I had a similar feeling when seeing these lettuce leaves...no I didn't try them as a hat but I was bored and the camera was handy...and i was wearing the tea cossie already.

I just like this image for the green of the lettuce (like I say with progressive weakening strength as the Winter progresses towards Spring snow is great but all that white wears one down) which reminds me of Spring greenery and warmth and growth and so many other adjectives.

My mother, many years ago, went into a greengrocer in a quiet south coast town of the elderly and retired and asked for a Cos lettuce. The greengrocer said they didn't have any call for Cos lettuce as their clientele found them to be too noisy! I think you have lost the main quality of this delicious lettuce, namely its crispness. IMO of course :}

Perfection - you captured the crisp, crackle of this Romaine lettuce - actually my favorite for salads. All I'd need now is a bit of extra virgin olive oil, some balsamic vineger and some spices and about a tablespoon of honey mixed in. Yummmmmm!
