Fractalline vegetables

Many outdoor patios in Toronto decorate their borders with colorful, decorative cabbages. I really admire them.
The texture of the leaves is pleasing, a sort of three-dimensional fractal which grows increasingly curvy as it approaches its edges, and the smoothly transitioning color of green to (unexpected) pink.

This post's theme word is ogive, "a pointed or Gothic arch," or "one of the diagonal ribs of a vault." The vegetable-inspired ogives spiral up into the sky.
