Artichoke!

Pennsbury Manor has a kitchen garden I enjoy photographing throughout the year. A couple of weeks ago my wife and I headed over to the site with our friend, Missionary Kit Ripley, to wander the grounds. It was kit who looked down at the artichoke plants and said, “Look at that!”

Indeed, look at it! I’d never seen one of these in the garden before, and the structure of the plant is remarkable. I wish I had a true macro lens to draw out its details, but my 55-300 mm lens did an OK job.
