A Close Up Photograph of a Purple Artichoke Flower Plant at Descanso Gardens...



Here is a close up photograph that I took at Descanso Gardens in the section where they grow edibles.  I believe it is an artichoke plant, the flowers are very similar to those of the lovely thistle plant too though...  I love the combination of the soft purple beauty of the flower with the more spiky part of the plant.  I hope you will enjoy this photo.

I also hope that if you celebrate Thanksgiving, you have a wonderful one!
