Old King Cole was a merry old soul, and a merry old soul was he. I was looking through some old pictures, and I found this picture I had taken of a man in a sort of king's outfit, sitting on the side of a raised bed of ornamental cabbages. He was waiting for his place in a parade or something, I can't quite remember. Anyway, I saw some ornamental cabbages the other day at a shopping mall, and it reminded me of a piece I had done of Old King Cole about a year ago, which is all very confusing, I'm sure. So why do people plant ornamental cabbages, anyway? Can you eat them? If not, who had the brilliant idea that cabbages alongside your bed of pansies would make for great landscaping? Cabbages must have one heck of a PR department.
