For one thing it's such a nice phrase to say, try it. Ornamental Cabbages. Isn't that nice?
I also like how at first, it appears to be an oxymoron, because cabbages aren't generally held to be aesthetically pleasing, but ornamental cabbages are such lovely colours and the crinkly leaves are very satisfying.
These beauties were outside our local health foods supermarket, which I like because they also sell Green and Blacks chocolate.
When I first started commuting to London, I would catch a number 8 bus from Victoria station, and it has really lovely route around some of the more picturesque parts of London. If possible, I would sit on the left-hand side at the front, on the top deck of a proper routemaster bus.
My favourite part would be the spin through Berkley Square, there was usually some public art on display in the gardens there, and, in my first winter of commuting, one of the offices had window boxes full of ornamental cabbages of every possible colour.
It was always a nice way to start the working day.
