Foxgloves in the Garden

A few days ago, I shared some pics of the beautiful gardens around the home of Arthur Blank, a co-founder of The Home Depot and the owner of the Atlanta Falcons. One of the things I especially love about this tour, Gardens for the Connoisseur, is it always takes place on Mother’s Day weekend and the foxgloves, my very favorite flower, are always in bloom.

These pics were taken in another garden on the tour…and I went a little crazy…just couldn’t stop myself from snapping lots of pics of all the foxgloves in this wonderful garden. I just love ’em!

Did you know they make Digitalis, the heart medicine, from this flower? The actual name of the common foxglove is, Digitalis Purpurea.

I took a good many pics on the tour…I’ll share some more later on. For now, I’ll leave you with these lovely images. Isn’t she the cutest thing?! Do you see the kitty cat? Such detail…she even has a garden hat in her hand. ๐Ÿ™‚

The tall purple flower growing behind her is allium.

    Enjoy your weekend.

    Growing up in the woods of Oregon ( yes, really ) the forest was full of foxgloves. It was magical as a child. That's why foxgloves have a special place in my heart. Your photos of the foxglove garden is great. They really need to be massed together to be truly appreciated. Thanks for this post.

    Love the lovely images, I know you had a great time.

  4. Beautiful! Foxgloves always remind me of my Grandma…..she had beautiful ones in her garden. It's nice to hear that they are used for medicinal purposes!!! Happy Pink Saturday.

  5. Hi, Susan. You took beautiful pictures! All of those flowers look absolutely gorgeous… As does your tablescape below this post for Tablescape Thursday! I just took a look at that too. Your porch looks so pretty 'peeking in' from the outside. And everything looks so pretty in your candlelight pics. Oh, and I love your new little lighted butterfly and your tealight holder! So nice! Well, thanks for sharing and have a great weekend!
    Best regards,
    Gloria

    Oh, Susan! What a joy to see those foxgloves. They are one of my favorite flowers, but alas, they do not like our climate. Love the little statue, too, and I have allium in our yard. Thanks for sharing.

    Happy Pink Saturday!

    XO,

    The foxgloves are so beautiful. But the little girl sitting next to the purple allium is my favorite. Just darling.

    And thanks for hosting Tablescape Thursdays. I am dying to participate, but cant' seem to get my act together. Like you, I work full time and by the time Thursday rolls around I haven't put my table setting together. It's just marvelous how you do all this Susan. Thanks for hosting all of us in your home and being a bright spot in my week!

  16. Vintage French Hen says

    WOW! His foxglove is stunning, but then again with a name as famous as Home Depot as one of your occupations is should be! Thanks for sharing and Happy Pink!! Marcia

  17. Magnificent pics! Happy Pink Saturday to you Susan!

  18. ~~Carol~~ says

    I've never seen so many foxgloves all in one place! These are a favorite of mine too, and I'm so happy that one of mine actually came back this year. I've heard that it's a biennial, but the one I bought last year says it's a perennial. I really enjoyed seeing these pictures, for my first Pink Saturday!
    Have a great weekend!
    Carol

  24. I loved this! I would completely lose myself wandering through this place.

    I didn't know that about digitalis, either! So great to learn something new.

    I've never commented here before although I love reading here so much. Todays flowers were just too lovely to go without a comment.

  25. Mid-Atlantic Martha says

    What an amazingly beautiful garden!

  26. Susan, beautiful Pink Saturday post. I've never grown foxgloves. I wish I had room for a huge cutting garden. Wouldn't that be fun?
    My Mad Tea Party is posted if you have a chance to stop by. You'll recognize part of it. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Happy Pink Saturday! ~ Sarah
