They are certainly pretty flowers. I have no idea what they are, but they are pretty.

I support the foxglove idea , but to be sure I'd like to se a leaf. Nice shot anyway.

What a beautiful poisonous flower, I just love the purple, perfectly captured.

The term digitalis is also used for preparations containing cardiac glycosides, particularly digoxin, extracted from plants of this genus.

Thank goodness for this Beautiful Purple Poisonous Foxglove as the digitalis it provides helps keep my Dad alive.
