Finally Some Foxgloves



I've bought foxgloves from nurseries several times, and I've had flowers here and there. This year I was on the lookout for small foxglove plants. All summer when I was weeding and I came upon a tiny foxglove plant, Ed would come and carefully move it to this spot by the stone wall. Now I have a foxglove patch. The plants are looking good and they should have the necessary roots to get through the winter and produce their a beautiful display next year.

The low rosettes will reman under the snow like Sleeping Beauty requireing the kiss of the warm spring sun to awaken and bloom. It's a good thing they are ready. We have snow in the air and the garden soil is cooling down. It's time for a nice long nap!

Foxgloves are one of my favorite flowers. They seem so magical to me.

You should have some beauties in the spring -- isn't it always nice to have something so special to look for in a few months?

I have become foxgloveaholic!
So far they have not self sown in my garden, but I still hope that it should happen. Next year will hopefully be the white foxglove year in my garden:)
