Nature Notes 07-31-09


Nature Notes is the brainchild of Rambling Woods who challenges us to "look at something you might never had paid attention to..a flower…a plant..an animal…What changes are taking place?..Is your garden starting to come to life again?"



This is an artichoke that didn't get eaten. I love to see them go to seed, such spectacular color and texture.



Hmm, what's that crawling around in there?


Aha - a pollinator. Ms. Bumblebee, I presume.

I never knew what an artichoke would look like if you didn't eat it. It has a pretty flower and I love the hidden guest. Thank you for posting to Nature Notes Terri... Michelle

Wow,how spectacular! It's like a giant thistle. I think I'll plant some of those next year just to let them flower. Cool!

Artichokes are members of the thistle family!
