Look at our Foxgloves




I think these flowers are magnificent and I keep looking at the special little painted bee runways everytime I walk up the path. What with the ferns we have our own mini woodland here.


I am particularly pleased with these as I planted about two from a specially bought 'Cottage Garden' pack, and in a few years all these have self-seeded. Most of the other cottage garden plants were got by the snails. We have also been doing a few planters, and already some plants have been reduced to stalks overnight.


Of possible further interest in this photo is the postbox which we need because Scamp doesn't like the postman, and the holes in our nets because he is always sitting on the windowsill. lol

foxgloves are strange and marvellous. We planted lots here years ago and every one was eaten by slugs. Since then every now and again one appears somewhere unexpected. So far not in the house, though. My eyesight isn't good enough to see your holy nets. Do you stick the sellotape on the room side or the window side?

I love foxgloves, these are beautiful. Seems like everything I plant these days are eaten by snails or bunnies. I have a lovely batch of sticks.:)
