Ash Trees and Artichokes

Apart from being plants, they have little in common.  But this particular ash tree and this particular collection of artichokes share a kind of solemn beauty in death.  My images respond to the image and words in Patrick Jennings’ challenge #258, which is reblogged (in effect) at the end of this post.
(BTW, the [Menu] button atop the vertical black bar reveals the widgets.)

There is beauty
In all things
Even death

To understand this
Is to master life

To master life
One must master death
