Hi David
Been having problems with my internet and health the local cattle seem to be obsessed with scoffing the phone line cable.The weather in the north is still about a month behind but starting to improve I hope we have a good summer.
Best wishes

"pink Brassica" would normally be read as a claim that the plant belonged to the genus Brassica. What I expect you meant was "pink crucifer" (Cruciferae is an alternative name for Brassicaceae, for which crucifer is the corresponding English noun), "pink brassicaceous plant" or less elegantly "pink (member of) Brassicaceae".
