BABY ARTICHOKES AT THE FARMER’S MARKET. Too beautiful to resist. When an artichoke is left on the plant it blooms into a gorgeous thistle flower! I love the pale green-gray colors of these baby artichokes. Some of them were dark forest green with maroon undertones, too. Another lesson in a nature color palette. If I had a seamstress, I would have her make me linen clothes with simple lines in artichoke colors & I could wear them with a blue & white china necklace & be a secret artichoke fairy.
