Oh my gosh, you might have taken that picture at my house! I have one artichoke that is at the same stage! The bees love it! I did cook one this year already to show Annalia about eating them, but they are not worth cooking and eating when they are so much more beautiful this way. By the way, I start the Renton Annual Art Show tomorrow morning and finish next Friday, Sat., and Sunday with RRD’s. Can you believe how quickly a year can slip by?
