I saw these beautiful foxgloves at Home Depot in late Spring, and of course my pocket camera was itching to snap a few.
A Close-up of One Foxglove
In the first picture, I tried to show an overall look of foxglove glowers, and in this one, I zoomed in to only one flower! It showed the details inside of this foxglove.
Two Different Colors
This cluster had two different colors of foxgloves, a combination effort of two plants. The first plant produced light yellow, almost white flowers, and the second plant had the purple foxgloves.
If you notice at places like Home Depot, Low, Meijer, Kmart or Walmart, at the end of the season the flowers were usually jammed together on a rolling carts and ready to be tossed in the garbage.
Instead of dumping these plants into the garbage in a week time, these stores should just offer them at a very low price so other people could buy them and enjoy them. However, they rather throw them out than lower the price.
A Mixed of Colors
This plant was so elegantly looking in the sun. It was one of the lucky few that sat on the top shelf of the cart. In this sunlight, these foxgloves had a touch of lavender, and also light yellow.
I took this picture in December while visiting Monterey, California. Living in Michigan, I do not see outdoor blooming flowers in the winter, so it was a thrill for me to gaze upon.
I could spend all day taking pictures of flowers and things, but I was with a group of people, so I must follow their paths, and moved on.
Let the Sun Shines on Me
I couldn't resist a close-up of these beautiful foxgloves, and these flowers had such a deep pink colors to them. The sunshine and these foxgloves made me happy.
During the dreaded winter in Michigan, I often look at these flowers to remind me of the joyous times in California, where in this different part of the world, flowers are still blooming.
Enjoy your weekend!
