Against the odds

Docking station for Bees
I love foxgloves for the eccentricity of their structure and the random pattern of their spots.  I love the way the bees go right into the flower and buzz loudly and impatiently to capture all the goodness.  A garden with foxgloves is not a silent garden.

In spite of the rain and the construction work, some things have survived.  The theme today is strong pink.
Rosebuds in the rain
And the open flower - an old rose in next door's hedge
