love your work!
“fox gloves mandatory” 🙂 I love these stately flowers and will have to try and sow from seed next year…
It’s the best way to insure the cotillion is held. 🙂
So gorgeous! Fox gloves are a favorite of mine. We don’t have this color nearby, so it’s refreshing to see a different one, and the verse is fun. 🙂
Thanks Sheri. I adore foxgloves. I think this one is an old variety. It’s in a very old, established, New England garden.
I have seen that color before, but not in my neighborhood. We usually have the pick petals or sometimes yellow or cream.
Got me chortling: fox gloves mandatory, and I can see the pretty foxes resisting that altogether….
