Foxgloves, lupins, Poppies and Crane'sbills

I've grown wild foxglove Digitalis purpurea in the garden for years - it seeds itself everywhere and the bees love it, and ....

... sometimes you get some interesting seedlings, like this pure white one.

Not only is it white, but the flowers are tilted upwards like trumpets rather than angled downwards like bells.

The lupins are in full flower now.

I can't remember which cultivar of meadow crane'sbill Geranium pratense this is, but ....

...it's especially attractive when the sun shines through the petals
