When you have a family that specializes in landscapes, you never know
what comes home and the possibilities that lie ahead.
This metal chair was found years ago in a yard sale. The chair had been
sitting outside and so the patina was purchased with the chair for next to
nothing. Fred then made a small flat bottomed wood planter about 2
inches deep that would sit on the chair. I filled it with dirt and some cast
off Hen and Chicks, and other succulents that the neighbors didn't want. I
wish the picture gave this striking chair its full due.

If you want to forgo the last few artichokes of
the season in order to wait for a bloom, you
may find it well worth the wait. My second
year plant offered at least 1/2 dozen fruits. I
found a couple small artichokes that I missed
and let them go to flower and seed. They are
large and beautiful flowers.
