Artichoke porn

Choke2Any other day I'd have something to say about the jewel-tones of fall and enjoying the fleeting show. But it's been a rough week at the end of a rough month and I just wanted to post this because it's really pretty. And it reminds me that even the end of a season can be quite lovely, full of rich memories even if not burgeoning with immediate promise.

Life goes on. I tell myself that. Even at times when the lifecycle seems to be more about cycle than life. Say it again. Life goes on.

And the leaves that were green turn to brown. And fall, to reveal the cycle part--the tiny leaf buds, and the fatter ones that will, in the spring, become the rose...and the magnolia..and maybe even the artichoke. (okay, that's two bits from songs, someone stop me now)

And the artichoke that was green turns to purple. And it's still darned pretty. Tasty, too.
