I bought myself a cabbage

It was a couple of years ago now... I was walking along and saw these cabbages sitting outside a florist shop. I bought myself one - it made me happy. I thought I would extend the purple happiness by planting the cabbage but my thumb is NOT green (or purple) and the cabbage died. But not before I had enjoyed its purple and almost teal green beauty.

Otherwise known as Kale or Boracole this ornamental cabbage has become a popular item as a floral decoration.
Here's a photo I took recently of a cabbage arrangement in a restaurant.

You guessed it! I'm up to purple in Nic Howard's Colour! Or is it Color? class at Big Picture Classes.
