Ireland’s most spectacular wild flower is blooming prolifically on the lane today. The Foxglove, Digitalis purpurea, An Lus Mór, reaching up to 150 cm high and hosting up to 75 individual flowers on each stem is everywhere.
I remember so well as a child putting the little flowers on each finger as faery hats or fancy thimbles and the sight of them still has a magical effect today. Although I am drawn to them it is almost impossible to do them justice in my photographs. But who cares, it is sheer bliss just to be amongst them, and I will keep trying!
