My Pretty Bit of the Day photos are a visual diary of pretty things I find interesting.
Today’s post is the first flowering of my artichoke plant.
Squeeee! I love artichokes; pretty and tasty and useful.
Artichokes contain antioxidant flavonoids such as Quercetin and Rutin, which are known to promote vascular and heart health. Additionally, the Luteolin, cynarin and silymarin in artichokes may help with regeneration of liver tissue, and may lower risks for some cancers.*
