I never knew radishes were called anything but radishes. Thanks for the new word. And those carvings are unbelievable. I am your newest A to Z follower, for the moment. :-)

I'd like to hear more about the night of the radishes. I'm guessing the history would be fascinating.

Have a fabulous day honey. ♥♥♥

Oaxaca has many interesting and unique traditions. Those radishes look really neat.

There's a night of radishes? That's awesome, why doesn't the United States celebrate a vegetable for a night?

I've never understood the appeal of the radish. They are pretty in salads, though.

I love that top piece. I stared at for awhile, impressed that you painted on a radish....then read the caption! It really looks real.

I should plant some radbano (new word!) for Earth Day!

The Night of the Radish sounds kind of ominous. Now I want to use that as a story title. But it also sounds like a lot of fun.:) Thanks for teaching me something new!
