Visiting Les Potirons -Foxgloves

Foxgloves taken at St James Church, Exeter at celebration days before our trip to Jersey. We went to a 50th year celebration for our dear friends and I saw these beautiful foxgloves in the church yard and had to get some close ups and try to study them.

The next day we’re off to revisit the island of Jersey near the coast of France, little did I know we were going to a farm called Les Potirons
