A New Addition for Autumn

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 26 October 2020 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

This year, I decided to complement our fall planter of yellow mums with two different varieties of kale that we purchased at the local store. This variety is a purple-green variety with eye-catching forms and veining. It requires little pruning and no "deadheading". :-)

Photo captured September 23, 2020.

I was just thinking the other day, while out on a walk, how we learn a lot about color combinations from Mother Nature, Steven. This is a perfect example!

Kale is a great choice to plant Steven. I have seen some great gardens in the U.K. with Kale and flowers together. Excellent image.

Beautiful. Kale looks lovely but, for me, not something to eat.

very attractive image - the center is tack sharp and the whole outside has a softness and an almost counter-clockwise swirl feeling.

It is a very photogenic kind of kale.
Perfect level of detail.
