Bees in the artichokes

Left town for a few days and came back to a mass of honey-sweet artichoke blooms keeping the bees busy. Seems a bit of a job getting in there for a bee, though. IMG_6245 The blooms really pack a visual punch! I feel like I'm growing an art installation in the front yard. IMG_6246 IMG_6254 Bee battle!

The bee battle picture is incredible! Your artichoke is beautiful in bloom. It does look like a piece of art. I'm trying to hold back on picking all the blooms off of my artichoke and saving some for the bees. Love those delicate borage blooms.
