It's All About the Colour for Macro Saturday

Digitalis or Foxglove 'foxy' has mauve-pink flowers on it with enchanting little spots.  
My one and only delphinium is a pretty irredescent blue.   This gardener did not stake it properly and in the recent windy days here it fell over.   The stalk would win no awards now. It was very pretty while it lasted.

The tendrils on the foxglove are amazing in detail. Well, on both pictures, but I like the foxglove best.

Lots of flowers need to be staked to stay perfect but you photographed the delphinium while it was nice.
