Today's Flowers

This is one of the few flowers left after the frost. And it is not really a flower. It is kale or cabbage of some sort that becomes beautiful after the frost. While it is edible, it is very tough, so most people treat it like a flower.

I love the ornamental cabbages!
We used to plant them years ago. Looking at these beauties reminds me why I liked them. I love the color and the ways the veins are so pronounced.

I think kale is so beautiful. Never tried growing it myself but love it mixed with pumpkins and mums.

What a beautiful close up. I sometimes see these but my husband says they grow these everywhere in Korea.
