Some people — particularly those to whom every blade of grass represents potential profit — consider foxgloves a weed. When they're flowering, though, they're undeniably striking, and the bumblebees love them. The old road cutting at the front of the terrace seems to be a favoured place for foxgloves and they've been flowering profusely. Now, however, the final flowers hang high up on the long stalks, and I imagine the last of the flowers will fall over the next week. The place will be a little duller without them.
