In a vase on Monday: Artischocke Blüte

Or artichoke bloom. I bought it on Saturday at the Stuttgart flower market for €4. The directions on the tag said to keep it dry; no water necessary. The easiest “arrangement” possible.


It smells something like honey.

  1. They’re as wonderful as floral decorations as they are to eat! I tried one in a vase earlier – they’re even heavier and harder to balance than sunflowers.

    1. Some of them in the market had long stems, but you would need one of those really large (expensive) vases to hold them. Right now, mine is happy just resting right on a tray on the coffee table.
