Fabulous Foxglove

This week the foxglove are in full glory.

Aren't they spectacular?

I don't know why you don't see them in more gardens.

From just one plant comes so MANY more next year.

I sprinkled the seeds from dried stems last year. Now, as far as the eye can see little leaves are popping up.  I'll relocate them in the fall.  I can't wait to see what they look like next year! 
It just keeps getting better and better. 

Such a show stopper!

Pop over to PVE to enter a giveaway for one of my freshwater pearl and starfish necklaces. 
Just leave her a comment (on yesterday's post) to be entered. The drawing is tomorrow.

hi julie,

gosh i hope this comment goes through. you should see my foxglove. i can't believe those tiny seeds you sent produced what looks like will be 3 plants. i'll try to get a pic later on and email it to you. it's much pinker than the ones in your picture.

of course i already entered the giveaway, shameless, i know.

You really have such magic, everything you scatter with seeds or beads is amazing!

These look beautiful! Love the color too. I have tomorrow off and I'm hoping the place I go for plants will have these.

Oh I absolutely LOVE these photos. Foxgloves remind me so much of England when I used to live in Gloucestershire. There would be tiny little 15th century cottages with foxgloves all around. They are so amazing how they stand so high and are almost surreal. Makes me really want some in my garden now. And of course purple my favourite...Will be heading over to enter the competition right now!

So pretty! My father-in-law used to have a beautiful garden in Arkansas full of foxgloves.

Hi Julie -

I love foxgloves, they grow wild in Devon and seeing your photos takes me right there.

Thanks for sharing.

Love foxgloves AND lambs ears...together. A combination I have in MY garden! And I like the fact that the foxgloves will reseed all on their own! : )
