It was a blue and purple post yesterday, inspired by the blue sky, which, in true Melbourne fashion, turned grey about 3 minutes after I posted! It then swapped between the two types of sky (grey and blue) all day until it went to black at night. In the inbetween hours I managed to pop out and take a few more photographs and found a few more blue and purple bits, which had not been so obvious at the time. It seems the cornflower in the hanging basket have finally decided to flower. Though the wind was so, so, soooooo fierce it was near impossible to get a photograph.
Oh and Miss Lisa, the cornflower in a pot from the last post is your if you want it - didn't realise you were such a fan, I just grew it as a lark and one is enough for me. The foliage in this plant, trying to grow at the base of the cornflower is a lovely shade of purple.
This is a picture of the cornflowers from inside, I missed it in the last post.
The purple sprouting broccoli, while being miles away from actual vegetable output is at least beginning to show signs of purpleness in the stems and main leaves. Probably a little hard to see in these pictures but it is definitely turning.
Ok this this baby swiss chard is more red than purple, but I just love it.
This following picture is blurry, no matter what I did I couldn't seem to get a good one, but these are the new beetroot poking their little heads through. It's almost a miracle they germinated! So exciting.
So many beautiful colours in my winter garden!
