Ever since I happened across these glorious Foxglove plants at Albertson's grocery store (of all places -who knew Albertson's was carrying high quality affordable perennials?!), I've been thinking about gardening and how much fun it will be to have a back yard where I can create some perennial beds. My mom and I used to work together to beautify my parents' flower beds back home but it's been a while - too long actually, since I've done any planting of my own and if the house we're hoping to purchase, becomes a reality, you'll know where to find me...
Anyway, Foxglove has been a favorite cottage garden flower of mine ever since I got into English gardens, back when I was about 15 thanks to movies like Emma (the one with Gwyneth Paltrow, where Mrs. Bates has a lovely garden outside her humble cottage), magazines like Victoria (Remember that one? I think it's back in publication now actually... ) and my late, great Uncle Steve.
Here's some foxglove inspiration for you:
