The artichoke plants were well along when we returned to Paros at the end of January. Every week we watched for the new buds that did not come. Then about three weeks ago, there they were and growing fast.
Today we harvested and quickly enjoyed our first produce of the year. Delightful!
The other highlight of the day is that Karin impulsively went swimming in the sea while we were wild flower gathering in preparation for May Day wreath making. She pronounced it delightful.
But there was trouble in paradise; after she got out she stepped on a bee and was stung.
This photo is a portion of our side garden. The light and camera do not do justice the vibrant colour. (Click to enlarge.)
I couldn't resist this photo of the new generation of Greek construction worker.
