I am a member of this website, Blotanical, which is a great place to find a million other garden blogs if you are ever interested. Anyhow, on this site, many of the writers do a monthly post on what is blooming in their garden. It falls on the 15th, or maybe 16th, of each month. I have wanted to participate since I heard about it months ago, but as I am a bit, hmm lets say absentminded, I have forgotten every month. I clearly am incapable of remembering the right day. So since it is my birthday today (!) I am making my very own birthday bloom day post. Here what we have flowering in our garden today:
The almost an artichoke flower.
