This is the first artichoke I have ever grown. I only planted one. I guess I just wanted to see if I could grow one. When it was ready for picking I wondered what an artichoke looked like when it bloomed.
I must say it’s freakin awesome!The little petals are practically iridescent and so pretty.
I am glad I let it do it’s thing. Next year I will plant enough to eat and a few to bloom.
Purrincess Puss thought she was missing out on something and came to investigate.
She is a dirtball. She has no business being outside since she is declawed, but she cares not. This spot in the garden was made just for her dontcha know?
I love her nose freckles.
She is really pretty, but
Me-Oh-MY-Pizza-Pie, is she cross-eyed!
I wonder if she sees double?
