Friday Plant of the Week

I love how these foxgloves have naturalised on the edge of this woodland.  The flower spikes are about 1.5 - 2 metres high, so they're pretty splendid specimens.

Digitalis purpurea


Those little spots inside the base of flower are to guide bees and other insects toward the nectar, which is deep inside the flower.
