KALE


Another journey into my archives. I thought this decorative Kale was so vibrant and colorful I just had to take a picture of it.
Be sure to click on the picture to enlarge and see all the details.

I love these decorative Kales. Where I once worked was a large old English house. It was winter and the lady of the house was unwell but still gained pleasure from looking out of the window at the gardens. The lack of colour dissapointed her, so I planted hundreds and hundreds of these in patterns around the upper lawn. It was nice to see a smile on her face.

That Kale really is gorgeous. Each detail on it is great; the purple colours, the water drops; the petals with fluted edges…just lovely…

It's so pretty! I can't believe you also have flowers blooming still. Your landscaping must be so colorful judging from just your last two shots.

I was growing some kale like that once, when I lived in Washington State. Then my landlord's cows (I was renting a home on a farm) got loose one night. Chomp, chomp, chomp, and then I was no longer growing kale. :O
Nice shot, love the water and the color both.

Bill said...
