True Garden Bouquet

Hello friends, I hope your week is going well so far. Mine is going well, I got back in from City House on Monday and have been getting caught up on odds and ends. Before I left, the Mister filled up a new raised bed with good soil and I planted a few starts for the Winter garden..Kale, Rainbow Chard, and a new one for us, Purple Pak Choi. Today, I think some Mesclun and Tuscan Kale seeds will also be added to the bed..we will see what comes up.

Speaking of Kale, I just had to share with you the bouquet from my garden.  This kale was just too pretty to leave in the garden.

I clipped some large leaves off, added a small bunch of flowers from the market and now we can enjoy it in the house.

I must share this too..I am so thrilled with our second try at Kiwi here on our gazebo.  Our first attempt was a miserable failure and we almost didn't try again.  I got a good deal on two Female plants at the feed store and purchased a Male plant at the nursery.  As you can see, this girl is reaching for the!

One last thing to leave you with.  Normally I don't share a lot of grandchildren things but sometimes it is too good not to share.  This is our daughters youngest little guy.  Our son in law is a fire fighter and has today off so was left in charge of the four children while mom gets all of the market shopping done. No small job as 3 of them are now in home school.  This is the photo that Colin sent daughter while she was at Trader Joe's and said..."He did his writting lesson too...on himself with the marker".

Love how Abe is 'dressed' for the day too!

Wishing you all a happy rest of the week.

What a lovely bouquet! And your little grandson is adorable...:) Good luck with the kiwi! I have never a kiwi plant before. My son used to love them when he was little and always wanted to take one cut up in his lunch box...:)

Haha, how 'comfy chic.'

That purple kale is beautiful! Hadn't thought of using kale in a bouquet. Might steal your idea for our table bouquet tomorrow. :)
