Fresh From the Flower Market

I have a thing for super seasonal flowers, which this week includes foxgloves. Completely old fashioned, been around for centuries, and also known by the Latin - digitalis - yes, like the heart medication. I know digitalis makes my heart flutter! As do the fab mini callas (really maxi callas, as they're pretty tall).

I'm also loving the bearded iris which are out right now. I think I bought 6 different colors, because you know I had to have them all!
