FOXGLOVE

After flowering last year, I allowed the foxgloves around the garden to set seed. The result is good, and many new plants have sprung up, in the right place and equally some in the wrong place.

After a spring tidy today, I have found many a new home. I haven't the heart to move the one in the photo above, it has decided to grow from a crevice in the wall and looks to have settled in rather nicely.



The photo above, taken in my garden last year, shows the beautiful speckled-pink spires of a foxglove, nestled amongst a pale pink peony.

I bet your garden is beautiful Louise. I am hoping to spend lots of time out in my garden this year. I will visit your blogs for hints and tips!

What a healthy green beginning to your Foxgloves. Spring does know how to keep us in anticipation, doesn't it?

Love them!
I sowed white foxgloves and I'm hoping they will flower this year.
They are everywhere too!

I loved the Foxglove growing in the wall. Never move volunteers if they add something to the garden. Wonderful

I have foxgloves and peonies in my garden and I love them. They make me think of gardens in my past. As always your photographs are excellent! Thank you.
