ever seen an artichoke bloom? its magical!

we planted this artichoke plant in march of 2007 and it didn't produce actual artichokes until the next year (which is normal i guess, but the seeds said 90 days to harvest so we were confused but kept it anyway)- we were able to get 2 artichokes from it last year and 5 this year...we would have had 6, but we were out of town and i totally missed out, but sometimes it is worth keeping around so you can see this...

There is a stand at our farmers market that sells artichoke blooms. That was the first time i had ever seen them. If we end up planting some, it is going to be a tough choice between dinner and center piece!
