Very little of my garden is in full sun and generally I struggle to get delphiniums to flower well but for some reason this year, despite it being so cold and wet for so long, they're the best they've ever been.
The bees have been loving them today as well.
The bees have also been loving the foxgloves.
All my foxgloves are self sown digitalis purpurea and come in the usual variety of pinks, purples and whites but for the first time ever I've got a pure pale lemon one too.
And also this one that looks rather scraggly as a plant
but has the most amazing, very narrow and delicate white trumpets. I've never seen another foxglove like it before.
I'm hoping it will set lots of seeds for me to scatter about, maybe it might even cross with the lemon one!
