FoxGlove Love!

I am linking up with A Ruffled Nest...
for Fridays Pretties


This is what I look at every time I pull onto my driveway.


I am so thankful that even with the very little sun we are having
 I have beautiful things to look at in my garden 

                                        FOX GLOVES...
                   and my little garden ornament.
                 How is your garden growing?
What have you growing that makes you happy?

I have fond memories of Foxglove, it was a standard in my grandmothers garden. - Love your sweet bird ornament, it looks like it has a very nice patina.

Everything is growing like a jungle at the City House...Yikes! I had to have my son come over and trim the plum tree..it had grown so much with plums and leaves (missed pruning this year) it bent over and blocked the signal to my satellite dish..That's how my garden is growing. hahaha. xoxo

Oh, how I wish we had a beautiful garden to admire. It's not too bad, but usually I just go for a walk with Halle and admire the neighbours gardens. B and I keep talking about buying a little something to pretty up the gardens at our rental... but we've just been too busy doing fun family stuff instead! ;) Maybe before the end of the summer, we'll do something fun...

FOXGLOVE was one of my FAVORITE flowers, but I lost some a few years back. Yours are BEAUTIFUL! Makes me want to plant more again! LOVE your colors and home! We seem to enjoy the same style! From one sweetie to another.....Roxie

Your foxgloves are so dreamy, and beautiful! Would love to pull in the driveway and see these pretties everyday. Have a lovely day! xo Heather

I didn't realize until I came back to answer the back-splash question, that you live on BC's coast! We moved away from there, after 18 years, just four years ago. I've never regretted it, I love Manitoba and Winnipeg is so pretty with it's old architecture and little old houses. I finally got my cottage, here.
The back-splash is bead-board, and I find it to be very easy to take care of.
I adore fox-gloves, how nice that you are growing them in your garden.
I have peonies that are just now opening and they bring a tremendous smile to my face every time I see them!
I have planted a few tomato plants, I need to plant more. Other than that, I have my window boxes full and a few pots, too, with red geraniums and white labbelia (sp?).
Have a wonderful week.
Hugs, Cindy

I love your foxgloves! I love mine too thanks to you! I do have to admit I spend more time in my vegetable garden plot than in my flower garden, I'm thinking I need an English garden theme.....

Gorgeous. I just bought a lovely urn of colorful snapdragons. So pretty. I am waiting rather impatiently for my hydrangeas to bloom! Happy Friday to you. xo

Very pretty flowers! :-)

Your foxgloves are beautiful, especially the dark pink ones :-) Such a nice welcome home for you every day :-)

My garden is growing pretty well, but I don't think I'm going to have many hydrangeas this year. But on the bright side, I planted morning glories from seed for the first time this year, and they're growing like crazy!

trash talk said...

Ummm...looking at your gorgeous foxgloves I'd say I have a growing resentment that I can't grow 'em in Texas. I've tried three times to get them to take, but the heat beats me and them everytime.
Yours are spectacular.

Oh I adore foxgloves. There is something so quintessentially "summer" about them. You lucky lady!
