A sad photo today, for FOTD. I suspect these pretty foxgloves were not pretending to be dead in a last ditch run for freedom to sit in a crystal cut jar in someones kitchen. No I suspect someone had picked them and had seen someone coming, panicked and left them on the floor. Its probably illegal to pick wild flowers but they could be a dubious fact of the day, (for all you die hard Ministerians).
Is nothing sacred in this world? Those flowers had no idea what was in the part of the wood where they lie now, maybe we’ll get a few foxgloves there next year, is that going to affect the local ecosystem? Who knows?
