Delightful,colourful summer image. Apt citation too: the little fuzz-buzz gives us honey,which completed my testerday`s reflection, (some say it was date honey and not bees honey referred to in the Bible); the flower gives the lifesaving heart drug:digitalis.God is Great! Thanks.

Interestingly the foxglove is a medicinal plant – digitalis is given to some heart patients. Our son was given digoxin to regulate his heart and help keep him alive.
