One Little Artichoke.

At the very end of the growing season when all the other artichokes have come and gone and been eaten or left to flower, there is one little late starter showing up after the curtain has fallen.

I will let him go to flower and have a little splash of colour in the grey of the day.


  1. Aww that's lovely... do you collect seeds from it?

  2. It looks like a survivor. Actually it looks like a triffid!

  3. I am thinking that I will seed save from him Ali. He certainly has tenacious genetics!

    I am giggling at your ¨triffid¨ observation, Duchess. He would have to be the least intimidating triffid ever, he is only about half the size of his earlier appearing siblings.
