Sticking with the wild flowers, one which I have not yet managed a shot that I am 100% happy with - the foxglove. Foxgloves and honeysuckle really challenge me!
Digitallis purpurea or Foxglove has also been known locally in Cornwall as Cowflop, Green Pops, Pop Dock, Pop Glove, Flop-a-dock and Poppy-dock. I am finding it really interesting doing a little bit of research on each wild flower, the names are fascinating.
It is poisonous but William Withering, in 1785, discovered that digitalis found in the leaves prevented heart disease.
A big thank you to Sue118 for her UA on my dog rose and to every else for your CCs.
