My Favourite Flowers

All the family enjoy spending time in our garden, relaxing, & taking in the fresh air & warm glow of a summer's day. We don't have a huge garden, & a fair amount of it is taken up by our decking/seating area, but we use the space well & fill it with as many shrubs & plants as we can.

To me, the garden is the most important living space in the home, & surrounding yourself with the beautiful colours & soothing scents that flowers bring, provides a calm, peaceful place.

Living in the countryside, we are surrounded by stunning wild flowers, especially in the summer months.
We love to replicate some of these flowers here in our garden, & a favourite of mine is Foxglove.

Foxglove, or to give them there posh name "Digitalis Purpurea" (I admit i had to look that up), grow up on tall spikes, & are most commonly, Purple or white.
Being a woodland flower, Foxglove are well suited to shaded areas of the garden, out of direct sunlight.
We have limited space in our garden, so put some in an old wooden wine crate, which makes a great planter.
I could spend a fortune on flowers, & of course, they also make great gifts, A good place to shop is Flying Flowers (not that i'm dropping any hints or anything!).
