Gettin' a little foxy

Foxglove (Digitalis purpurea) has long been one of my favorite flowers, ever since I went to Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania during college and saw a massive display of them in one of the conservatories. In full bloom, there's nothing like foxglove and they photograph so beautifully. The fact that they're all in the range of colors I favor doesn't hurt.

I took this picture this past weekend when I unexpectedly came across an area where they were beginning to bloom. The symmetry and contrast against the dark background made one this a keeper, so I thought I'd share.
