Flower of Chinase cabbage (napa cabbage)

My potted vegetable has had beautiful flowers.

I planted a Chinese cabbage in a pot last autumn. It did not become splendid shape like ones sold at super market, but the leaves grew up one after another enough to eat.

It is already finishing their time.
One day I found some buds on the top of stalk. The beautiful flowers bloomed at last.
I was surprised because I didn't expect Chinese cabbage would have such flowers.
I've never seen this vegetable except in the greengrocer or super market.
It is my new experience.
