Foxgloves and Teddy Bears



While puttering in my garden yesterday pulling weeds and deadheading flowers I noticed a Foxglove that I don't remember having last year. It appears to be a cross between the purple one and the white resulting in a white with a purple/red speckled inside.   The Foxgloves are almost done, sadly, because every year I enjoy them wherever they pop up. And some years they pop up almost everywhere!





You know how fond I am of my Teddy bears. This particular one is enjoying a tea party with blueberries that we picked earlier this week. We've frozen some, shared some, and eaten a LOT. This is all that's left. Next week we must go pick more.


Hope you are having a peaceful and pleasant day.

Thanks for visiting.

  1. I am sad when the foxgloves go away too. It's all too fast this year.

  2. Cute little tea set! Your new color foxglove is so pretty! I don't have any because I think they are poisonous to dogs and you know how my dog is! Nancy

  6. I haven't had much luck with foxgloves, but I think they are so pretty.
    I'm smiling at your teddy bear photo. Now that is one lucky bear to be eating freshly picked blueberries. I can't help but wonder what he is reading?
