A few months ago I bought a flower bouquet because it contained what looked like some pretty white flowers tinged with green. On closer examination I wasn’t sure if they were flowers. I asked the cashier and other customers if they knew what it was. None did, and I stated my doubts that it was a flower. One women replied with complete assurance that, of course it was a flower. When I got home I did some research and discovered that it was a type of ornamental cabbage. I took some photos of the cabbages. I used one as my photo of the day (POTD). I’ve included a photo of a green and white cabbage and one of a purple cabbage.
I didn’t take care of the bouquet and all the plants withered and died. Now I have a collection of beautiful, dried leaves of purple and tan. Below is a slide show of some of the dried leaves.
