Brassica oleracea

On the tenth day of October...

MrM gave to me...

an ornamental cabbage.

He's groovy like that.


Many thanks to my kind MrM
for setting up
my shiny new laptop

and thanks to you all
for your thoughtful words.

I've got so much to tell you -
shall we start with pictures
from the South of France?


  1. What a sweet gift and so very beautiful. It reminds me of gorgeous and fragile porcelain. Oh, spelling on that last word?
    You get the drift..such fragile loveliness.

  2. I'd love to start with the south of France.

  3. Well, MrsM, you can even make an ornamental cabbage look enticing. I am almost - almost - tempted to go and buy one for myself but I know in my house I would just be asked why I hadn't put the vegetable shopping away. Or perhaps I would be informed that "we don't like cabbage." sigh.

  4. Hurrah, how lovely to have you back. Cabbage and all.

  5. Yes do please. Life up here is cold and soggy. I need to see sunshine.

  6. It's the french influence. A petite chou perhaps?

  7. Start anywhere you like - I'm just happy to have you back.

  8. Yes please, to the South of France. Shiny new laptop you say? Give it a good workout.

  9. I'd like to see your shiny new laptop, please. I know, weird, but.....

  10. Yes please!

  11. MrsM is my little choux-choux ...

  12. Whatever could I say after MrM's comment up here ...
    But pics are always appreciated.


Thank you! I love reading your comments and even though I don't always have time to reply I am really grateful to every one who joins in the conversation.
