Happy Monday!  I hope you enjoyed your weekend.  We had a wet and wild Saturday - thunderstorms even! We love the rain and don't mind a wet weekend now and then.  The birds were really putting on a show, we enjoyed the antics of a cute little chickadee bathing in the birdbath.  They are just so darn cute!

Today I will share a winter pot with you.  It has flowering kale in it.  This pink one is fantastic!

The purple isn't too bad either, though I think my picture is a bit over exposed.

The cascading plant is Dichondra.  It's an annual, but I thought it might just survive the mild winter.  We've had a few really cold days, but mostly it's been mild.  It looks terrible.  Maybe I'll just give it up and take it out.  By the end of the summer it was gorgeous!  Here it is in August. This pot was so pretty.

I hope you and your family are having a wonderful Monday.  Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Wonderful photos with seldom flowers. I have never seen them before. And a fantastic Mosaic. Great !
    Have a nice new week.

  2. Love those pics. Yep I think the cold got that, may it rest in peace!
    Can you root a little piece before it gets cold and keep it indoors over the winter.?
    I do that with Swedish Bridal Veil. Just enough so I can stick it in my pots next May.

  3. There's a blast of colour on this rainy day!

  4. I love that light pink kale. The combination with the purple is great.

  5. I just love your flowering kale! I've always wanted to grow some, maybe I should give it a try!
