More To Come.........
I had no idea there was a Cabbage Flower! It looks like one of those flowers that would stay pretty for a long time.
I love to see flowering cabbages appearing in the fall, and they last so long, well into the first snowflakes, which can only add to their beauty.
Ornamental kale is one of my favorites, Naomi!
Everyone needs a Van from The Conservatory in his/her life. ;) Nothing shouts "Happy New Year!" better than this wonderful gift.
Wow! The veins and the mix of colors are amazing! This is an all-around beautiful flower. Thanks for sharing its beauty (and your fantastic camera skills) with us, Naomi! :)
Hi Naomi! Lovely close-up shots of the ornamental cabbage. I've always been fascinated by its green-colored lace on hues of purple on each leaf. Cheerio.
how beautiful! those colors are amazing. you inspire me to pay more attention to my own garden. i've bought quite a few plants / flowering plants after looking at your wonderful photos. some have gone to the great big greenhouse in the sky and others have struggled to survive under my not-so-watchful care. still, your photos inspire me to keep trying!
I'm wordless too, in front of so much beauty!!
Those cabbage flowers are absolutely beautiful....I saw a fabulous sunset on Wednesday night that I know you would have enjoyed.
Heavenly colours. One thing's for sure Naomi: I could never imagine you living in a black and white world. When we see photographs of your home there is always colour to lift one's spirits and my goodness doesn't one need it in dreary January?
Naomi, those flowers are absolutely gorgeous! And you did a fabulous job, your photos are stunning!
Have a nice day!
see i learn something new today i didnt know they had a cabbage flower and they colors were awesome!
I have never heard of the Cabbage FLower - but I often think those purple type cabbages you can get are stunning (& you eat them!)
Thank you for sharing their beauty with us.
God is quite the artiste' isn't he? *sigh* Just beautiful, Naomi!
It is very beautiful, and now that you said that part about it looking good enough to eat... I'm imagining that it IS edible!! It would be delicately sweet and melt in the mouth. Yummmmy for the eyes and yummy (in my imagination) for the tummy.
I have more to read to get caught up, so I better scroll down and get to reading!
It was great to talk with you yesterday.
Take care and don't be too stressed over the plumbing troubles. They will be resolved in time.
you know very well that your wonderful photos from your Garden, well I must admit: You are a teaser.
You know that;))--- what more to say?
btw. I'll comment your very personal and unique ---- shhs - X-Mas Gift. Did I reveal too much?
Oh my goodness! Okay, those are absolutely breathtaking! I have to have them. Can I get them in electronic form? I'd like to play with the contrast and such and matt and frame them. I'll send you a copy? Pretty please? I know, I know, begging is so unattractive....but it worked in front of Congress!
Those are so gorgeous, passionate, intense colors with great shapes and lines. Wonderful photos for a drab winter time
You CAPTURED the passion of the CABBAGE flower in a wonderfully whimsical yet dramatic way. I loved your photos and I loved your accompanying descriptions. I could "hear" you say those words Naomi....your voice came through loud and clear. It made me feel like I was there when you took the photos and then as you uploaded them onto your blog. That was great.
Those cabbages are absolutely exqusite, Naomi !
Tagged you for an award, Naomi. Please come get it :)
If you hadn't told us it was cabbage I would have guessed it was an exotic flower from Hawaii
I have never had an ornamental cabbage before but they are so pretty. As usual you have brought them closer to my attention!! The colors are quite lovely, as nature provides such delightful art works for us to enjoy! I have never seen this used in an arrangement before. Van does a wonderful creative job!!
Hope you are well!!! XXXX
Oh wow - that is absolutely fabulous! :-)
I am stunned by how gorgeous that flower is!
Kudos to Van, he surely knows what you like! :-)
And I hope you have directed him to your blog so he can admire your homage to his beautiful flowers.
I was aware of the beauty of this flower however you certainly have given it a new visual of it's beauty...

One word: Magnificent!!!!
Just passing via Loving Annies blog. I simply love those colours together. Truly wonderful and vibrant and alive. I love lavendar and green together an pink and organge too. Wonderful photos. I shall call back and see you again to see you rother pictures that Annie mentioned on her blog.
Indeed they looked so beautiful and I was tempted to ask if it is edible ;)
But no....I promise I won't eat it heheh...
These photos are breath-taking, I absolutely love Cabbage Flowers. I have never seen them this color here in my part of Texas, only the ones in shades of green (and sometimes with a touch of purple).
I also learned something new and interesting about one of my favorites, Lana Turner, in your previous post. Thanks for some good reading.
Simply glorious! What beautiful shades of purple and green. Who would have thought that the humble cabbage could be as beautiful as any flower?
Purple is my favourite colour!
Oh wow....there really aren't adequate words to describe the beauty of these colors. You're right...once again, Van outdid himself! Just gorgeous!
