Favourite wild flowers!

One of my favoutie wild flowers is the stately Foxglove.  I've just got back to walking my dogs after a spell with a fractured fibula and I was delighted to see that these flowers are still surviving despite 40 days of torrential downpours in the UK! I have planted loads in my own garden and cannot resist buying them when buckets appear at the auction in Holland or in our local flower market at Nine Elms.

Digitalis purpurea

Fields of pink and white Digitalis

Digitalis 'Alba' is one that I have planted in my garden borders.

Natural containers suit wild flowers and I prefer to use them in a relaxed arrangement with grasses and Ceastrum as foliage.
