A week ago the wilderness garden behind our house was all columbines. They went to seed very quickly and now it’s the foxgloves’ turn – along with the Dame’s Violets and the slender spires of purple toadflax. All self-sown and grown. I’m rather taken with the foxglove on the right, the one with creamy lips. I must remember to collect some seed, though there’s no knowing how its offspring will turn out.
The white foxgloves are lovely too. They have lime green speckles inside each flower.
And finally a view looking out over the garden wall as the sun goes down over Wenlock Edge.
