Artichoke in Bloom

Artichoke Flowers 8″x10″ Oil on Canvas Board

A couple of weeks ago I went down to the local community gardens and found this lovely artichoke in full bloom. I think as a rule they never get to this point as they are picked early for consumption. I never knew that they had such beautiful violet coloured blooms.
