adding collard midrib

So: A little vase with a Tree-ivy (Fatshdera) leaf was sitting on the windowsill this morning when I started to fix breakfast. I usually add some greens to my morning egg, and this morning I added chopped collards. The white midrib I carved out of the collard leaf before chopping it was too pretty to throw away, so I dropped it into the vase with the Tree-ivy leaf. In this photo, they look almost like one leaf, but this is actually a Tree-ivy leaf with an arrow-shaped collard midrib in front of it. The combination is more dramatic than it looks in the photo.

I finally took time to look up the common name for Fatshedera. It's Tree-ivy, not to be confused with English ivy that grows up trees.
