Pot Refresher

I redid the pots on my front steps recently with a mix of edibles and fall flowers.

Ornamental Kale gets more colorful as the weather grows colder, and there are many purples to chose from, so I love kale. The subtle touches of purple look great against the feathery leaves of this particular kale.photoPansies are edibles that make a great choice for cooler fall temperatures.

The only plant remaining from the summer mix is the tall purple grass in the background. So what changes do you make with the shift of seasons?
