Ever Seen an Artichoke Bloom?

We are in Palm Springs enjoying the very warm was 113 degrees as soon as we got off the plane! Good thing we have the pool to cool off in. Before I left I took a few shots of my Mom's garden. Have you ever seen an artichoke bloom? Do you remember when I showed you this? Here is the artichoke plant before it bloomed -

and here is the beauty now -

I had no idea -

I am so planting one of these next year! Enjoy Your Day!
