Day of the Cardoons

If there is such a beast as a cardoon-spotter, it would have enjoyed today. ( I am merely a fan.) These giant thistles were present in several gardens on todays route. They have edible stems and are a source of vegetarian rennet but mostly they just look good. Penshust to Leigh.
