Foxglove up Close

Foxglove blooms
The spires of the Foxglove are reminiscent of fairy tales. Here's a closer look at the blooms. I read somewhere that blooms were perfectly designed for bumble bees. It looks like the bees fit right in (wide body blooms). We certainly depend on the bumble bees for pollination of our vegetable garden, so anything to make them happy is great. I love the speckles on the inner flower.
