In the garden: I love foxgloves

I always associate foxgloves with Chelsea or, as I should say, ‘The RHS Chelsea Flower Show supported by M&G.’ It’s their time.




I don’t mind where they seed themselves but they’re very obliging about being moved.



I prefer white with maroon spots but there are none this year.



There’s a row of them in front of the shed and this one is aiming for the roof. I should clean that shed up.
