Well it looks like there no exploding flowers on my foxgloves this year. Such a shame as they were beautiful 💞 #common-foxglove #digitalis-purpurea

Cataloguing. This must have been a gift from a bird as I've never grown them. Much as I love them I have always worried about Emily as she loves touching plants, so I've explained to her that they could make her poorly so hopefully I won't have to dig it up 🌼🌼 #foxglove #digitalis #giftfromabird #freebie 6/6/19
