    1. They are indeed Julieanne. It is amazing how a giant of a plant can be grown from a small seed.

  2. Wonderful, though it's a wonder they're still standing in the wind we've had recently.

    1. We have two plants, Jo. One is protected by the shed next door and stand tall. The other is partly battered as it is every year.

  4. Do you cardoons and artichokes or just cardoons? Love the flying bee/wasp shot!

    1. We do grow both, Mal. Same type of flower but plants of vastly differing sizes.

  5. They are very attractive to photograph and to the bees.

    1. They are Brian. The bees hunker down in amongst all the purple 'petals' and disappear.
