The first foxgloves of the season are starting to bloom. They are deadly poison if ingested,  but one of the prettiest wildflowers I can think of. I saved tons of seed last year but then missed my window to sow them in time for blooms this year. They are pretty proficient at reseeding on their own though, and we have some hardy stands of them that seem to get a little bigger each year. Foxglove stands out as such a symbol of summer to me.

    Hi Abby! I smiled as I opened your post, as I just planted my first Foxglove this evening. Such a beautiful, old fashioned flower. Didn’t know they were deadly 😮 I will enjoy them with great care. Have a lovely weekend!
