We didn't plan this group of foxgloves but they've grown up in just the right place, by the bird feeder at the corner of the patio. There are more of them, some with purple flowers, some with white, growing along the border by the hedge.

They look at home here: stately but relaxed. Foxgloves would grow in a similar situation in hedgerows and by woodland paths in the countryside so what looks natural there is likely to look right here.

I drew this with my Rotring Rapidoliner which is behaving itself better since the inky inflight mess it got itself into on the journey to Mallorca last month. The free-flowing densely black ink works well on the Gutenberg paper in the sketchbook Roz Stendahl made for me. Next Page
