these tall, slender plants lend themselves very well to vertical shots...

Another great shot.

It's interesting that the bottom of the plant blooms before the top.

I love these flowers and I can never remember what they are called.

Hagar, there are many varieties of flowers that exhibit this characteristic. Don't ask me to name any. I am terrible with names of flora!

We have lots of foxgloves (digitalis) in our garden (yard?). My photographic problem with them is that they're so tall they're almost always in motion.

Mods, does this beautiful shot lead in the altitude or high jump record in this vertical challenge?

Lovely foxglove shot. You are correct their height makes it a tad diffciuflt at times to capture them motionless.

Now that someone mentioned it the deterioration of he flower system from the bottom isn't all that unusual.

Thanks for sharing.
