Hola! It’s my favorite time of year here on the East Coast of Virginia, early fall. I can’t get enough of the crisp cool air, sunshine, and hearty suppers that go along with cool fall days. This is also my favorite time of year to work in the garden, but I like to keep things simple and sweet.
I have sort of a thing for kale and cabbages, I really can’t explain it. And yes, I know it’s a weird one. They’re not the flashiest of potted plants, but I just love them. My mom likes to tell me this story of when she and her friend purchased a car load of cabbages at the pottery years ago; the car ride home was so stinky they could hardly stand it. So it’s not for the sweet smell, that’s for sure. This is ornamental kale and it looks like a giant green rose bloom to me. So pretty.
I usually go for pansies and violas too—now they smell sticky sweet! These are white and lavender violas and they will bloom here through spring, or at least until it starts to get really hot.
