The Artichoke of Great Neglect

Well, I am trying to post on a more regular basis but am at a loss for words today. I think I've lost my blogging mojo and I need to blog more to get it back... but I am at a loss for words... (Is this Groundhogs Day enough for you?)

Anyway... I did try to write a clever post about my morning in Jury Assembly Room 3 at the Orange County Courthouse but it just didn't work. (I can say that Jury Assembly Room 3 sports some comfy chairs, free wireless, shows movies during the lunch break, and is conveniently located right next to the cafeteria. Also, the judge who welcomed us must work on the side as a Baptist preacher. He was quite the speaker and advocate for our jurisprudence system.)

So... I must blog. I... must... blog... (and use as many ellipses as possible!) Hence, I give you pictures of my greatest gardening accomplishment--which came through my greatest gardening neglect. Never watered, never fertilized, never tended beyond its first potting. I present to you...

the Artichoke of Great Neglect. (I'm sure my offer for a gardening show on The Learning Channel is in the mail!)

Wow. I can honestly say that I never knew how artichokes grew. And I certainly never knew they had beautiful purple flowers!

I don't know where exactly I thought they came from, perhaps I just thought they magically showed up in the produce section.

That's funny. I thought artichokes great like tomatoes or something....
