Cardoon






Originally uploaded by mulysa_may

Cynara cardunculus
ASTERACEAE, The Aster family

An arrangement for December.

This occurred almost naturally as the dried Cardoon flowers were displaced while the house was being decorated for Thanksgiving, and they ended up near the heat vent in the kitchen, where they opened and slowly started releasing their plumed seeds.


About Mulysa

I love my work as a landscape designer and artist. When I'm not planning homesteads or working in the studio, you'll find me hiking, photographing, gardening, baking, cooking vegetarian meals with friends, reading and working on sustainability issues...with my baby on my hip in Portland, Oregon.
