Kia hora te manno
Kia whakapapa paumamu te moana
Kia tere te Karohirohi

May the calm be widespread
May the sea glisten like the greenstone
And may the glimmer of summer dance across your pathways

Swiss Chard

Yesterday April 9th, I planted four Swiss Chard (Bright Lights) plants in my flower garden. Yes, I know they are vegetables, but they are colorful and I think they will be a rather attractive addition to my garden spot. Of course I will eat the Chard.

See how colorful the stems of the chard are.

Last year at the annual plant sale, I bought this un-named plant which also has interesting leaves. I can't help but think it is also in the chard family. Does anyone recognize it?
