My god - that is gorgeous! But how can you let that delicious artichoke just SIT THERE?! I would be an artichoke thief in the night if I lived near nuff.

So this is what those fuzzy things at the artichoke's heart become? Beautiful and exotic looking - almost like some living undersea creature.

Oh, but you must let them bloom!

I wouldn't let Richard cut down the (weed) thistles in the pasture until they were done blooming--love those, too!

Love the song by 'Squeeze'--reminds me of college and college boyfriend...
