Today’s Flower a Day photograph, one I took yesterday, is this beautiful ornamental cabbage! Who would have thought there would still be flowers blooming in Nova Scotia in January? (I know that there are snowdrops or other bulbs coming up in some gardens in the Northern Hemisphere now, but this is, as I said, Nova Scotia, Canada, and we are not anywhere near there yet – our winter has barely begun!) I found this outside a farm shop and it looked absolutely perfect, so intricate and furled and frilled and yet at the same time so…. bold. Bold to be there, outside, in the freezing day looking as lovely as any tropical plant. We may not all be like lilies, orchids or even asters, but we can be just as beautiful as cabbages in our own way. I hope that doesn’t sound too weird, for any who have read this far! Have a wonderful day, filled with your own kind of beauty.
