Foxgloves, Rothiemurchus

How often so you see such a deep blue sky in Scotland?  This tangle of foxgloves were growing in a meadow where trees had been felled, making a vibrant splash of colour on the steep slope.

Here’s an etymologist’s musings on the derivation of the name foxglove – the summary?  Nobody knows where the name comes from… Why do foxes have gloves?

“The most precious gift we can offer anyone is our attention. When mindfulness embraces those we love, they will bloom like flowers.”

– Thích Nhat Hanh
