Feeling Better and South African Foxgloves

Good morning everyone. Thank you for your well wishes. I am feeling better today, this is the 4th day of this cold/flu bug. It definitely feels like it is on the wane and I am thankful.

I've not been doing much of anything. Did make a big pot of vegetable/garlic/chicken soup, yummy. I 've been wathcing old Disney classics on you tube. These old Disney movies had wonderful visuals, vocals and morals.

The light purple flower that several of you asked about is ~ Ceratotheca triloba or South African Foxgloves. I believe this is plant that popped up from seeds dropped from old plant last year, and I only have the one. I love it, as it is very cottage garden looking, and grows in our heat and humidity.

You can read all about it here.

Happy Gardening and Be Well.

Am so very glad that you are feeling better. I don't think that you would like me to doctor you, (according to my cat's opinion)
Take care and rest, and enjoy your enchanted home and surroundings.

Glad you are feeling better.

We love soup any time of year.

I read when I am under the weather but have been doing way too much of that lately.

Hurray for soup and Disney movies! :) (That always works for me too!)

The foxglove is beautiful!

Glad you are feeling better. No fun being sick - even worse in this horrible heat. Love the color of your foxglove.

Hello. So sorry that you were feeling bad with a sore throat but glad to hear you are feeling better.Chicken soup always makes you feel better. LOL!
What a delicate flower bloom the foxglove has. Just a hint of lavender makes it even prettier.

I have been hearing of that spot of flu from different bloggers as far as Canada. Do get better. If you four days in to it you can maybe see sunlight soon. Beautiful flower.

I'm late in getting around to read your posts and hope by now all vestiges of the flu have passed.
I like the lilly on your header--is that called "blackberry lilly?"

I love the color and shape of this foxglove. What a beauty! I forgot to mention I enjoyed seeing your blooms in the first post I commented on.
