My very first blog was pictures of my garden, mainly my artichokes. We are eating artichokes from March into May and by the end of May we are sick of ARTICHOKES!!! So from mid May into June we let them go and this is what happens! The most amazing flowers! The first time I let them go on to bloom I was shocked at how beautiful the flowers were.
Each year I am again amazed at how beautiful this vegetable is as a flower. This year my son Michael, who is a very talented photographer, took these pictures of them. They were especially beautiful this year...but then again, I say that every year. If you have never grown Artichokes, try it. They grow like a weed and are delicious and beautiful! If your kids like artichokes this is a fun one to have in your garden.
