Artichoke flower

I know artichoke is a vegetable (don't think I ever tasted one though..), but I surely didn't know that the artichoke grows beautiful flowers! I was really amazed :)
Photo made last weekend in the gardens of the estate 'Landgoed De Bonte Belevenis' on the island of Texel.

I'm linking to Floral Friday Fotos and Today's Flowers.

  6. De artichoke en je vorige posting hebben wel iets gemeen. Inderdaad een mooie bloem.

  11. Lovely shot of this striking flower. I love eating artichokes, but they must be cleaned and cooked carefully. Artichoke frittata is great!
    Many thanks for joining the Floral Friday Fotos meme, I look forward to your next contribution.
