“Foxglove” – Royal Botanical Gardens

“Foxglove” - Royal Botanical Gardens, Burlington

“My favourite plant is the foxglove. I think they are a perfect balance between being a garden plant and a wild plant, as at home in woodland as they are in a city.”  
– Clive Anderson

Keeping on my recent departure to flower photos, above is a wonderful foxglove blossom that I found at the Royal Botanical Gardens in Burlington, Ontario. The gardens are divided into several sections, which cover a large area. This plant was in Hendrie Park, which is a garden directly attached to the main gardens entrance. The entrance way leads to a long walkway that runs the length of the park. The foxgloves were among many bright and beautiful flowers on display along this walkway on a very hot June afternoon.

    Your opening quote is an apt one. Sharp detail on your image. Foxgloves grew wild in our lane where I grew up. We’d pick the blossoms and wear them on our fingers. Long time ago but a still-vivid memory. 🙂
