the vegetable garden at Chenonceau

Here are some examples of different types of chard grown in the vegetable garden (today is a "three-fer").  The leaves on these plants are huge and the colors of the stems are really intense.  This is a very small sample of the variety and beauty to be found here.  I won't even start now on the flowers but save them for you for a later post.

Please view in full screen if you want to get the full effect.


  1. Pretty colors, nice to have an edible arrangement as pretty as the flowers are.

    1. A little late in responding as we were on a trip this last week. Anyway, yeah, the vegetables are often as pretty as the flowers in this garden. I wish we could do so well at our either category.

  2. Love to eat this stuff -- but now it looks too pretty to eat! I'm seeing a "chard leaf quilt" in this too!
