Blooming foxgloves

Foxglove flowers



My young flower beds aren't quite to the stage where they stand up to distance shots, but the closeups are delightful.

Foxgloves from a family friend, chamomile because it reminds me of my mother (who enjoys the tea), columbine from another friend, borage (not quite blooming yet) because one of our blog readers suggested it as a high-quality feeder of native pollinators, some zinnias and nasturtiums (also not blooming yet) just because.

Every time I look at one of the plants, I smile!
