Breakers, Umhlanga

Umhlanga is a beautiful place on the North Coast of KwaZulu-Natal.  On our recent visit there we stayed at Breakers, a well maintained and attractive resort, overlooking the Indian Ocean.

Our accommodation was excellent.  We slept in a large comfortable bed made up with crisp white linen. There was a well appointed kitchenette, a lounging and dining area and, to top it all, an overwhelmingly magnificent view of the sea.

It’s easy to relax in beautiful surroundings.

Ornamental Kale

I bought ornamental kale at the garden shop this morning – their beauty made them hard to resist.

Ornamental kale is sometimes referred to ornamental cabbage and can be found in a variety of colours like purple, white and red. If kept indoors they prefer a cool, well lit room.

Apparently they are edible. Although they take the shape of a flower they are actually foliage. Kale and cabbage are both members of the cabbage family. The difference between kale and cabbage is that kale forms a flower and cabbage does not.

There is another difference though, kale is beautiful but I certainly can’t say the same for cabbage!
