  1. Dear Stella,
    Nice to meet you.
    I am an international student in the UK.
    I am making a PowerPoint about Asteraceae family.
    Could I use your beautiful artichoke flower photo for it?

    1. I'm glad you like the picture. I guess you mean cardoon (Cynara cardunculus), aka artichoke thistle, pictures. Although the full size photos are copyrighted, you can use the small size pictures from the blog post for your PowerPoint presentation as long as you credit me.


Speak out, I'm listening.
