A Week of Flowers 2022 – Day 3

White and purple foxglove with lady’s mantle

I’m joining Cathy at Words and Herbs for her third annual Week of Flowers. She writes:

“Please join me in making December a bit brighter. From Wednesday, November 30th through Tuesday, December 6th, create a post. It can be one photo, or more if you like. You can post just one day or all seven. But do leave a link in the comments so that we can all see what you have found to share!”

Open to all… Let’s brighten up the blogosphere!

    This is SO beautiful! I have only once managed to grow foxgloves successfully in my garden.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Anne! They do need a fairly moist situation, which isn’t much available these days for you. I imagine them near a pond or hose pipe where they’d get enough water.

    Gorg. Gorg. Gorgeous.

  3. Sheree says:

    Lovely composition

  4. Cathy says:

    Aaah. Beautiful! I am still trying to get some foxgloves established in my garden. Thanks for sharing Eliza!

    What a stunning combination.

  6. I love foxgloves, and not sure why I don’t have them in my garden…

  7. Alice says:

    Beautiful Foxgloves, which remind me of a cherished childhood book that my Dad read to me: ‘The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck’

    Great together foxglove and lady’s mantle!

  9. Gorgeous foxgloves! Good with ladies mantle.

  10. Val Boyko says:

    Love this combination 💕

  11. I really like that yellow-green tucked among the foxglove.

  12. spanishwoods says:

    Really beautiful Eliza!

  13. Beautiful colors and composition, Eliza!

  14. Yes, these do brighten up December! It is mostly white and brown here now. 😐

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Same here, though we don’t have the white yet. I’m always grateful that at least we have some pine and fir to give us a bit of green. Then there are always shop flowers to brighten the table while we wait for spring. 🙂

  15. Kris P says:

    Foxgloves are another plant that sings of spring. While I did have a couple of stems last December, I don’t expect to see many here until February or March.

  16. Wonderful colors. Chartreuse is my favorite contrast color.

  17. Fabulous, just love this photo!!🙂

  18. Debbie says:

    I’ve never tried growing this, but it’s sooo pretty!!

  19. cindy knoke says:

    Lovely. I used to grow these beauties.

  20. shoreacres says:

    But not a Texas garden classic! Apparently they can be coaxed into bloom in north Texas, around Dallas and such, but the rest of us have to make do with Penstemons. I love the combination of chartreuse and magenta. In the 1950s, chartreuse and maroon was considered a fashionable combination; my mother painted our bathroom in those colors.

  21. Pepper says:

    So pretty. Your beautiful pictures of your garden are an inspiration to try my hand at gardening. 😊

  22. Dale says:

    You keep sharing your beautiful nature’s bouquets like this one.. Gorgeous.

  23. Even more than the warm temperatures, I miss the colour. Beautiful photo, Eliza!

  24. Dalo 2013 says:

    Beautiful shot, Eliza. I like the mood of the flowers :-)! You have shot these from a great perspective, a wonderful feeling for me this Sunday.

  25. Our foxgloves have left us. Glad to see your lovelies.

  26. Bela Johnson says:

    So beautiful. I don’t think I can grow these where I am, but I am going to check … right now! xoxo

  27. Lovely! One of my favorites…
