For months I was fantasizing about an over-the-top vegetable Versailles after seeing walking stick kale in the Annie's Annuals catalog. I was able to learn a little bit about this Dr. Seuss-like veggie from Google but it was Gardenhistorygirl who came along and really satisfied my thirst for more information with her post The Cabbage that is King: Brassica oleracae longata.
In the post Edward Steichen's Garden History I learned that photographer Edward Steichen was also a delphinium fanatic and president of the Delphinium Society of America. Really?! People are interesting...the plot thickens.
Thank you Gardenhistorygirl for the giveaway, but especially for your very special blog which satisfies my thirst for esoteric garden tid bits!
