About 3 years ago, the area under the electricity lines to our house was cut back and the trees trimmed right the way back away from the power cables. This resulted in a lot of disturbance of the ground and most of the vegetation was lost becuase of the marshy nature of the ground. A rather messy area of mud was left for 6 months until foxgloves started to grow there. There were none there before hand (at least not recently)
Last year was the first year that we had this wonderful display. This year has been even better with well over 200 or more flower spikes. In amongst them all I found this one which had fallen over and was resting on another flower spike.
I liked the way that the light was catching the flowers and with them on their sides, it seemed to add that touch of orginality needed to present a rather usual specimen.
