Nut - so purpurea doesn't just mean the purple ones then? A lot to learn...

I am not 100% on this, but i think any that contain purple will be called purpurea, so in this instance the footprints are purple.

I think the exact name for it is "digitalis purpurea albiflora" its featured in July's GW magazine.

What has everyone been up to?

I wonder on the number of bees and if its only certain areas of the country.  when i am in my garden there seems to be lots of bees, mainly what i think are the solo bees, same goes when round at my parents house, my dads garden is full of them and i think quite a lot of the bees live under his garden shed/workshop.

Im in lancashire btw.
