This picture was taken last September in my far garden. It is a close up of a tricolored bumble bee on one of my Artichokes that I let flower instead of harvesting. I was curious about how the flowers would look so I let one progress well past the picking stage and was rewarded with a beautiful almost neon lavender flower that attracted quite a few of the cold weather orange belted bees as well as a few late season butterflies and evening moths. It was well worth letting one artichoke go past its eating stage.
