Winter's Flowers: Colorful Cabbage and Kale

At work the landscapers have put in pretty "flowering cabbages," whose leaves are as pretty as any summer bloom. I love to see them when I arrive at our tower and when I leave for the day. Snails ate up quite a few, leaving only topknots and bare stems, but many remain. I hope the warm temps coming this weekend don't cause the plants to bolt!

Hope your Thursday is a good one. Christmas is certainly bearing down on us quickly. It will be here in a flash. Today would be my mother's birthday, had she lived. She died far too young a long time ago. She would be 93 this year. It's a bittersweet season.
