Artichoke

 We have never planted artichokes before, so thought we should give it a go. Not sure when they were supposed to be harvested, but this one was looking a little beyond it'd due date.
 Picked them, put 2 in a vase and was surprised at the artichoke opening up.
This one is a little slower than the top one, will be interested to see how it looks in a week or so.

I have a 50cm art quilt challenge to make, due in March and also the Winter School in July.
I was thinking of doing doors/gates/entrances for the school class but these artichokes have fascinated me.
Perhaps I should look in the vegetable garden for inspiration.
