Random but pretty


More flowers along the railway embankment. They either self-seed or someone has sprinkled some seeds there. Either way, it makes an attractive, if somewhat random, wild border with bright splashes of colour and plenty to attract insects.  These are foxgloves (Digitalis purpurea) and red poppies (Papaver rhoeas).  If it was a 'someone', I salute you.

  1. So nice you were able to capture this shot. I see things along the highway but am unable to stop and get to them. Lovely.

  2. They are really pretty, jennyfreckles. I recognized the foxglove (digitalis), but didn't recognize the poppies.
