Flower of the week: foxgloves

040515foxglove

I love foxgloves and now is their prime time. They’re all over the garden, mostly two to three feet high and in an array of pinks. I’m slightly disappointed that there will probably only be one white one this year. I plant out a row of these in front of the shed each year and one has turned into a monster. I’ve already had my photo taken with it, to show that it was a foot taller than I am. It keeps on growing and is now above the guttering and touching the roof. Luckily the recent storms haven’t damaged the foxgloves at all. That’s what we like: tough plants which are good doers.

Taller than the shed and dwarfing others in the same bed. Thatching work reflected in the window.

I love foxgloves!
I hope you have some :-)

I can never decide whether foxgloves or primroses are my favourite flowers. Probably primroses.
