Foxglove growing in an alley near our house

‘There’s a foxglove, foxglove in my pansy patch,’ I sing,
‘Decked so brightly by the rain, there never was its match.
It is made of velvet petals, russet blots and lovely smells,
And the wind he is the ringer for its peal of bells.'”
— Esther Freud, Mr. Mac and Me
