Hello everyone, not seen a single foxglove in flower yet, amazed at how late they are. Lots of healthy leaves and just a start of flower buds on a couple

    Mine have opened at the bottom of the spike - but it's a slow process, and definitely later than usual.  (West Somerset area)

    Almost, maybe a couple of days yet.

    Some of my white ones should open in the next few days but the normal pink ones and the perennial ones are much further behind.

    Some of the purpureas are showing colour.. Not a lot of action elsewhere.

    We saw a few wild ones blooming in south Cornwall last week - we've got some white ones just beginning to open today in our garden here in Norfolk.

     If you look at the white one at the back of the shady bank - nearest to the lantern-shaped bird feeder - it was showing colour when I photographed it on Monday - now it's just beginning to open - there are some others on the bank beginning to open too - the ones in the foreground aren't as advanced.

    No-one knows if you've done your housework, but everyone knows if you've done your gardening !
