Foxgloves

We just love foxgloves in the Potting Shed. Its strange how something so beautiful is so poisonous, (this happens alot in life!) saying that they also save thousands of lives with there heart stimulant properties (digitalin) these particular ones are a lovely shade of apricot. Foxgloves are a promiscuos lot in the garden so you could end up with all colours but they areĀ all nice. Incidently i have never seen a fox wearing them as gloves, maybe its the time of year they flower…. a bit warm for gloves.
