Colorful chard leaves were being used as decorative plantings in some of the flower beds. I thought they added a nice touch and brightened the spaces where they were used.
The colored veins reminded me of an illustration of a circulatory system used in a textbook!
Learned that Chard is a leafy green vegetable that is used in Mediterranean cooking. Supposedly very rich in nutrients if prepared properly.
Tulips were just beginning to open up. Noticed everyone seemed to enjoy looking at them as we did.
The Daffodils were planted among the tulips which made quite a show.
Usually these numerous outside beds have a profusion of colors from the many varieties of flowers that are planted each year. We were just visiting to early in the spring. After all a frost or freeze is still a possibility this time of year.
