A gift of purple kale

At the nursery the other night, inspired by their stunning displays of purple kale, I bought two pots of this gorgeous cool season plant and was raving about it to the owner. As we headed to the car with our bounty, the young girl who'd waited on us came running, her arms overflowing with pots. At first I thought we'd forgotten something, but instead she thrust three more pots of kale at us and said, "These are free, compliments of the boss." Wow! That made my day! And doesn't it look great in the garden cart my dad built as a housewarming gift? I'll probably need to move it to a shadier spot later in the summer, but for now, it makes such a pretty filler for the cart. Thanks, Andy!
