Foxglove

Foxglove

A spectacular plant. Beautiful and a favourite for bees. I think of it as a good old-fashioned cottage garden plant. I love to watch the bees crawling in for a good meal. Well known as being poisonous, you do have to try hard to get poisoned though, i.e. sucking the flowers or eating the seeds, stems, or leaves.  Why you would want to do those things I don’t know but best admired and not eaten is the message.
