Digitalis delight

foxgloves 2 sunshine and shadow

Early June, summer arrives with an explosion of light and wild florescence.
Those poisonous purple spires kept me alive for years with heart-mending drugs
and with hope.


Cling to enjoyment
of the beauty nature brings
reassured of life.

For Sally’s wild challenge

  3. I just planted a foxglove (digitalis) in my garden–but need now to keep a close eye on those dogs who love to get into trouble. They are gorgeous, as is your poem.

  4. Fantastic photo. I had no idea Digitalis was poisonous. The flowers are stunning. The last paragraph of the poem said it all. Stay well.
