    I don’t have a clue as to what they are Suzie. Maybe some of the other readers will know.

    Foxgloves. That’s where digitalis, the heart medication, comes from.

    When I was a kid we used to take the flowers and put them on our fingers. Children are easily amused …

    Your picture is much prettier than the one used as an example on Wikipedia! ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digitalis_purpurea ).
    We used to have them in the garden, and we put the flowers on our fingers, too. It’s even called thimbleweed over here. My mother used to get mad, because she told us already so many times that is was poisenous! That of course made the plant even more interesting 😉
