Someone gave me a flowering artichoke last week. I could not get over how beautiful this is.

makes me mad when that happens.  i love to eat those things.

More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Very interesting flower, I've always wondered what an artichoke flower looks like.

The women who gave this to me said she sees an occasional honeybee going inside and then they get stuck and can't get out.
