Flower found on Logging Trail
« on: September 16, 2009, 04:31:04 PM »
I've never saw this flower before coming across it yesterday on the side of a logging trail. THe ground is quite rocky. Its a beautiful thing that looks like it should be in a garden. Any clues on what it might be?

Yup, looks like the lost garden flower to me.

And some kind of hollyhock.  ::)

I've looked up photos of foxglove and false foxglove and I'm pretty sure this aint that. We have foxglove in our garden at home and its significantly different. If this was in our garden at home, I would certainly say it was a snapdragon.

I bet it lies on a flight path from the garden to the bird's nest  ;)  You sure have big snapdragons down there.

Linnea is with Carla,Tom and Sprucegum.  It is a snapdragon, probably seed dropped by a roc.  :D

I was wondering the same thing.   

Maybe random overhead crap?
