Normally, the spikes of Digitalis (commonly known as Foxglove) stand tall and proud. But after a week of rain, even they succumbed, trying desperately to carry the weight of the speckled, lavender-rose blossoms!

I actually had photographed these flowers last week when things were still vertical and didn’t quite achieve an interesting image. Sort of a “been there, done that” kind of thing.

And, I’ll admit, seeing the bent stalks at first was distressing (add it to the list of damaged plants so far this season). However, it turned out to be a blessing in disguise as it allowed me to capture the progression from closed buds to full blooms in a single, close-up shot! Praises be! 🙂
