I wish I could say this is in my garden, but it's not. Last night we attended the Cracked Pots show/sale at McMenamin's Edgefield. I have blogged about the show before and I think it was even better this year. We always stroll the grounds and visit the vegetable garden but this is the first time I saw these blooming artichokes. I always think of vegetables bolting and going to seed as a bad thing but I'm considering planting some artichokes in the flower bed next year. They are about 5 feet tall and the all the tiny purple stamens were alive with little bees inside. I am loving our sunny weather and long Summer days!
