Jerusalem Artichokes

 After years of admiring these in Kansas, Missouri and my own property, I now discover they are jerusalem artichokes!  A native wildflower - they are also a wild edible, and are supposedly delicious!  I will dig some when the time is right and roast the roots!  These sunflowers seem to last forever as cut flowers, and have a long bloom time, too. It wasn't until I wanted to identify it among other wild sunflowers that I found it's name.  How wonderful!  The bees really like them, too - they kept buzzing me as i painted!  Painting number 2793 in 2793 days.
