artichoke experiments

Earlier this week I shared a photo of artichokes with Kim Klassen’s Texture Tuesday, to which I had added one of Kim’s textures.

One of my readers commented that she would like to see a solid coloured background. I was intrigued by this idea so here are the results of my experiments

Artichokes are such versatile plants. Apart from being good to eat, they’re great to look at and their seed heads provide food for the birds in the winter

“His memoir is a splendid artichoke of anecdotes, in which not merely the heart and leaves but the thistles as well are edible.” – John Leonard

“At least you’ll never be a vegetable – even artichokes have hearts.” – Amélie Poulain in the film Amélie
