Re: The August Plant Parade Challenge

I agree Kay. That is a problem with tall plants.
I suppose one could look at it from another angle e.g. from below. I suppose a group makes a better composition but a botanical drawing seems to be traditionally vertical. Glad you have started; you are spurring us on!

Re: The August Plant Parade Challenge

What very consider...ate people!
According to Kate Greenaway's Language of Flowers the foxglove means 'Insincerity.' I can't get a handle on that at all. Maybe its stunning appeal to us and the insect kingdom belies the fact that it could first cure then damage the heart? Maybe there is an interesting story somewhere as to how the foxglove got its name?

Re: The August Plant Parade Challenge

Oh dear - I've had a bit of a disaster with mine! Those white spots on the inside are really tricky. I might need to start again!

Kay Silver - Oh tricky spots in the inside! I don't like the sound of that! I must get started!
I've been having a close-up look at a Macro Foxglove flower photo - and you're right, those spots do look very tricky!
