I am so lucky as the birds reward me for feeding them and just give me some nice plants and I have no problem taking them . This is just one Foxglove they have given me as there are so many ready to open I have just noticed a lovely cream one about to open.

Oh ! I have to keep my part of the bargain up and keep feeding  them as I just love these they are so tall this one is bigger than me , and it is placed in such a nice place with such a lovely coloured background .

Thanks Birdies.

Gorgeous, Clare-the Foxglove oh and of course the gardener! OOOOPS! IIm delighted to hear you have cream. I have lots on the point of opening and Im hoping for cream and apricot-I put in a bout fifty-got them as a bargain!

Even if they didn't give you plants, feeding the birds is so rewarding; I love them in the garden.  Gorgeous foxglove and the birds even placed it in just the right spot for you.  Mine are soon to open and I'm dying to see what colours they will be.

I'm sad to see that my foxgloves haven't reappeared this year - the past few years I had the popping up everywhere :-(
