Foxglove, many in my garden, white to purple. Bees love them.

Foxglove, many in my garden, white to purple. Bees love them.

As always well observed Carole. When ever I see a foxglove it reminds me of the one so very very large that grew out of a fine crack at the front of our home. It stood there firm all summer long and just got bigger and bigger, as you say the bees love them. So do I. Thanks for the pleasant reminder.

Thanks John. Yes they anchor well in any situation I've had them grow out of the rockery side, I take the main stem off when it's seeded then small stems grow. I shake seed everywhere:)

A very dramatic painting of one of Mother Natures sturdiest plants well done Carole

Lovely painting Carole.

Lovely Carole, especially that little bee.

Heavenly painting. Sounds like a heavenly garden too Carole.

Another great painting Carole, love the dark background, what paper have you used?

Thanks all very much for taking time to comment. Linda this is just some Daler Rowney cartridge paper.

Another beauty Carole, the dark background really sets off the painting.

I don't use gouache myself and therefore cannot comment on the technichal aspects of the painting but it is a lovely attractive piece and the dark background makes the colours glow beautifully.

Beautiful , it works well on the dark background !

Brill.........did you know there is a blue be in Japan? cheers peter

One of my favourites too Carole, whatever colour they turn out to be. I have a purple and white border and I set and sow what I hope are white fox gloves but odd the pink one sneaks in but I can't pull it

A good deal of my garden is left for the wild flowers to grow, yes, it's a bit overgrown but I like it, Foxgloves are one of my favourites, superbly illustrated Carole.

that is beautiful Carole

Lovely colours Carole.

So good to hear many like foxgloves, thanks very much for your generous comments.

Beautifully observed and the little bee just makes it.
