These are not recent photographs as our current days aren’t as bright nor pinky, more likely to be cloudy, and orange dominates outdoors though I still prefer autumn over spring. I will never regret spending hours stalking bumblebees in a garden; who would when they reignite fun memories. Those memories are of a stroll around a lovely cottage garden that I enjoyed with the Squire way back when we were housesitters; the sun shone brightly and warm enough for these gorgeous creatures to go about their business.
As it is all about the pink foxglove, myself and foxgloves go way back to when I was flying solo and had my very own house where I created huge gardens full of cottage garden delights.
The purchases were pretty much dependent on the spare change I had in my purse. Local markets were my favourite place to search for bargains or so I thought, spending a whopping $1 on just one foxglove. Having thought it must be an exotic plant. Being a novice gardener, I didn’t realise they spread like wildfire, and the actual value would’ve been 10 cents. That foxglove was handled with great care and produced seedlings and various shades of pink throughout the summer.
A dollar well spent, I thought.
