Eccentric looks at life including the thoughts of a retired working thinker.

This week's photograph is another from our 2010 break in Rye. This is a clump of Sea Kale (Crambe maritima) which grows everywhere across the shingle at Rye Harbour and on Dungeness. It is native to Europe growing along the coasts from the Atlantic as far east as the Black Sea. As you'll guess from the name it's related to cabbage and sometimes grown as a vegetable as well as an ornamental plant.
