One of my favorites and your photo is outstanding. How could anyone admire the uniqueness and beauty of this bloom and not believe in God?

Outstanding photo.
I had one Foxglove plant and while the deer didn't eat it, it didn't do well in our zone.

Oh, wow! That is a beauty! I just looked it up in Wikipedia and it says that digitalis that is a heart medicine is derived from this flower....but at the same time, it is highly toxic, both to humans and animals, including cats and dogs, so don't let your pets eat it. Even the water in a vase you put it in is highly toxic...children have died from drinking the water from a vase that held it. Just fyi....in case you didn't know. I know I didn't.
