Artichoke Update

I went outside today and took more pictures of the artichoke that I left to bloom. I found the center of the bloom raising above the outer edge.
From the top it appears that the individual stamens or pestles, which ever they are, are rotating around.

In this close up I noticed some white stuff I am thinking is pollen but not sure not knowing anything about artichoke flowers.

I think I will continue to take pictures as it develops just to see how it will end up looking.


  1. Oh, my gosh! That is just beautiful! Who would have thought?? I never left my artichokes going long enough to enjoy the beauty of their flowers.

  2. I always gave them away. I am going to keep posting up until they finally die. Just the curious cat in me I guess.
