‘Bloody Bells’

DAY 42 (17 MAY) – Foxglove (Digitalis purpurea) (Charleston, East Sussex)

Here at Charleston Farmhouse today I spotted a lone foxglove providing a splash of poisonous colour amidst the greenery.

Among others from the Bloomsbury Group, this was the home of Virginia Woolf’s artist sister Vanessa Bell, her two sons Julian and Quentin Bell – and her lover Duncan Grant. And it turns out Foxgloves are also known as Bloody Bells. Coincidence I’m sure.
