Foxglove, An Engine House and Echium

Our walk today was late as we waited for. the rain to stop but the light was good. We often think of our LiveWires when we do this walk as they have enjoyed it with us many times when on holiday here. We have been watching the Foxgloves growing and today saw one just beginning to bloom.

The following photo is for J who, as mentioned, has enjoyed this walk with us and whom we hope will be on The Great Flat Lode with us again before too long. Can you see what’s in the distance, J?

It is Echium season and there are some wonderful examples in neighbours’ gardens. The bees, who love these blooms,  can be heard before one even sees the plant.

Over a neighbour’s fence, 10-12feet tall!
