I could not let May end without mentioning my foxgloves.
I consider them fascinating.
Each thimble is designed to guide a bee into it.
The spots inside are like little landing lights.
The tall spikes of blooms and fluffy leaves below create perfect balance.
I have planted them many places from which they disappear, only to reappear somewhere else.
Seeds sown in the fall will sprout in spring and bloom a year later.
They are self-sowing biennials. Enjoy them wherever they choose to grow.
