I sketched out my foxglove digitalis on the front of my banner this morning. Foxglove flowers belong to the family of plants Plantaginaceae. They are native to Europe, more specifically to the Mediterranean region, although nowadays, they can be easily found in many other countries. They have been sighted in the Sierra Nevada foothills somewhat east of Placerville, California. I hear they can grove a yard high. My friend, Helen states they grow six feet high in Oregon. They are biennials, which means it takes two years to grow from seed to fruition and die. They have a vigorous leafy spike of dropping cigar-stub-size flowers.

My next step will be to sketch some leaves on the back side of this banner. Stay tuned!
