who knew?

I planted artichokes for the first time this year....not to eat...but to dry for decoration. With the heat wave that we've had here (around 106 with the heat index) I've neglected the garden spot where they were's mostly rosemary and 'Nearly Wild' I was surprised to see this flash of purple in that bed. I guess most things do flower if you let them go to seed...but I've never seen a picture of a flowering artichoke......who knew?
