a newcomer to the perennial garden.

hollyhock foxglove blooms. (I think! I can never remember what I plant.)

Ah, they’re foxgloves! Kim to the rescue! Thanks!!

Hope they don’t mind a bit of hot summer weather.

The heat wave in the New England states decided to travel up here to PEI. But it very nicely cooled down a smidgeon to 28 C today and 29 C tomorrow – 82 – 85 F.

Sunshiny bright skies – and hot – for us Northerners anyway 🙂

Definitely a beach day!

I love summer 🙂

    I just planted one like that for the first time this year too. I wish it would bloom all summer… my guess is it doesn’t.

  10. Where I come from, we’d call those flowers foxgloves! It must be like quilt patterns; names change depending upon the region!
