Think Spring

A flower shot from a previous summer. I've enjoyed others showing flower and garden pictures and decided to post my own. These are Blue Bells as far as I know. (Viewers say these are Fox Gloves... thanks for the correction) I hope you're in the mood for a 'think spring' Friday.

Wonderful "Digitales". I love this flower but she is very dangerous. It is necessary to handle them with caution

We call them fox gloves. The are the natural source of Digitalis, a powerful heart medicine

Yes, foxgloves, digitalis purpurea, here but beauty under any name we choose. Love the no-nonsense way you have presented them - I'm sure that's how they see themselves !

Happy almost Spring! Being able to identify many flowers is a skill I wish I had. I know a few but not nearly enough. I didn't know these and they really don't look familiar although I've heard of them. I love the little polka dots.
