punch drunk

The only thing that thrived at the allotment this year was the one thing we dug out last Autumn.  Our cardoon reached about 7+ feet high again with lots of purple thistles on it.  At least the bees were happy – positively punch drunk in fact.  How this little fella ever flew back to the hive I don’t know!

    Hi Nic, it is a stunning plant (weed) to have splashing colour in the autumn garden, and the bees will be eternally grateful!
