prepare to drool...
omg ~ if I could only get one foxglove to overwinter in my garden, this would have to be "IT!"
I hope it's hardy. A Digitalis purpurea hybrid ~ should be, right???
"sigh" It's almost a sin for anything to be this lovely.
How do my other blooms stand a chance next to it???
Which, btw, there are becoming more & more of (blooms.) The Double Pink Flowering Almond went from bud to bloom in about three days time and quickly reached its peak:
Each stem fully loaded:
I have to admit, it's pretty heavenly too.
Something else very pretty ~ Petunia hybrid 'Marvel Beauty Raspberry:'
Looks like crushed strawberries to me!!
But call it whatever, it's all good when it looks like this.
Under the Aspen trees, Primula veris (cowslip) has definitely peaked too.
It's been cool(ish) here so maybe if it doesn't get too hot, too fast, they'll last a bit longer.
Isn't that a funny thing to say ~ when we were so cold for so long?!!!
