Fresh from the Market

A few nifty flowers this week, well, one is more of a vegetable! I picked up these chocolate artichokes – they’re usually seen in green, but here in the brown, they look like the beginning of fall next to the burgundy aranda orchids.

Also got some gomphrena or globe amaranths – a great contrast in texture to the pennycress in the background.
