(Nearly) Wordless Wednesday: The One that Got Away

No, it's not a sea urchin.  It's an artichoke that got overlooked and bloomed.

  1. Wow, that is beautiful! Too bad artichokes taste so good and rarely make it to the blooming stage. :)

  4. Oh, I love artichokes in all it's forms and functions wish I could grow them here. The sea bass recipe look delicious and I'm going to give it a try. I'm spending time catching up on all the blog posts I've been missing while I was gone and enjoying the reading. Cheers.

  5. They do have beautiful flowers. Some neighbors grew them and let some go to seed and I couldn't believe how pretty they were!

  7. Did a wordless wednesday myself today, so more computertime for myself in stead of blogging. I really thought it was a see-creature! So beautiful that flower, why eat those giant things with so little parts to eat?! What made the first person to eat a artichoke eat the artichoke?!

    1. I have no idea how artichokes were discovered to be edible, but I'm glad they were! I love to eat artichokes. (The flowers are pretty, too.)
