Mums and Kale

This is the first year I have planted ornamental kale and cabbage and I'm loving the color and texture it adds to my fall pots.  I will definitely be planting these every year!

I love that combination... especially the purple that pops out of the kale when placed next to a burnt/rust mum. Lovely!

Welcome to Bloomin' Tuesday! I've always wanted kale but never knew where to put it. Love it in the containers! Thanks for sharing. Jean

Your Fall displays are so very pretty. I love the kale and mums together. Before I started blogging I never even knew kale was used for fall plantings. They are so pretty , like giant rose blooms.
I really like your makeover chandelier. What a difference paint can make.
Your puppy is so sweet!

I am loving your cabbage and kale mixed in with your fall decor. I almost bought some for mine the other day, but I knew I would just kill it with my black thumb lol. It is beautiful. Teresa

I put kale in with my fall pots last year for the first time & couldn't wait to repeat it this year. Yours look amazing along with your mums.
