A friend, Jean Thompson, took a drive up Chuckanut Drive and on to Bow Hill Road - and spotted hillsides of Foxgloves. We just had to get down there and see them - so a couple weeks ago we headed down that way - only about 10 miles from our house.

On a logged over hillside there are foxgloves running rampant
Up and down the hillsides
Foxgloves get their name from the tale that at night the "Wee Folks" would come out to dance in the moonlight, dressed in their finest and wearing the blossoms of the flowers as their gloves. "We Folks' Glove" became Foxgloves.
There was a side road close by so we drove down that and the foxgloves continued on the other side of the hill.
We've never seen so many foxgloves - thanks for telling us about them Jean.
We were on a side road - mostly gravel - so we could stop and enjoy the foxgloves for as long as we wanted.
Not sure just why that sign is there - but interesting.
