My Flowering Foxglove

Yes today is the 17th December and with the mild temperatures here in the South West of the UK,   I have a flowering foxglove,  it should flower in June and July,   There's a lot of daffodils out around the county but mine are still underground,   I just cant believe its decided to flower for christmas.
The strange thing is I thought back in the summer after it flowered and the slugs eat it, I had lost it, and that was it but no its come back to life.
Hope you are enjoying this lovely mild weather I am sure we will pay for it later in the winter,
Until we meet again
Take care
Since blogging this post this photo was featured on the local BBC news programme called Points West.  They wanted photos of flowers flowering early due to the mild weather, so I sent it in, I was over the moon when I saw the photo on the news.

  4. What a lovely surprise and such a pretty one too, and fancy the local news showing it, your famous...
    I am one of the few NOT liking this weather, I want the true seasons and abit of frost would go down nicely, far to warm for winter....I really am dreaming of a white christmas...lol...xx

  5. I love foxglove, although I've never had luck growing it in our soil. What a wonderful surprise to see it in December!

  6. A famous flower! My sister-in-law in Suffolk saw little ducklings a few days ago. Also way out of season.

  7. They chose your photo because it's an excellent photo with great composition! Congratulations! It is amazing that those flowers are blooming! You have talents in so many directions! I love the card you made, and the fish is simply adorable! You have more patience than I have with cards and knitting - especially those cute animals with odd shapes! And the 'butterfly' tatted snowflake is so pretty. I'm amazed how you persevered with that fine thread. You seem to accomplish so much, even when you aren't feeling well!

    I'm also intrigued that you're also having mild weather over there. It's going to be 'normal' here this weekend (cold), but going to warm up again next week. Fine with me! I am not a fan of winter and snow! I am glad that the days will be getting 'longer' again too, although it won't be noticed for a while.

    Hope you feel better soon!

  8. Beautiful! Our Seasons are a bit out of kilter this year too!
