Close up Artichokes

While I enjoy eating artichokes, I enjoy their color and shape even more. They grow in my garden visible from the street and passer-bys have been know to enquire as to why I would grow ‘thistles’ in my garden.

What a gorgeous color contrast the red bug and vibrant purple flower.

Even before they reveal the amazing purple, they are striking.

And of course, the bees appreciate them too, hiding deep inside or buzzing around the flowers.
