Revebjelle – Foxglove

Ja, vi har også denne i vår hage og til tross for at den er ekstremt giftig, så er den også veldig dekorativ, vokser til en høyde av halvannen meter og – er veldig populær blandt insekter – kanskje særlig humlene. Og de skal man som kjent ta vare på i disse tider?
På det første bildet får dere her et inntrykk av høyden?
Yes,- the ‘Foxglove’ – this is also growing in our garden! It is, however, extremely poisonous (but so are also a lot of other wildgrowing plants!) and ought to be handled with absolute care! If leaves are eaten, it may result in death! But it’s also pretty decorative, dont you think? It will grow to a height of approximately 5 feet and is very popular among the insects throughout the garden – perhaps perticular among the bumblebees! And the bumblebees are red-listed in several areas and need our protection today!
This first picture will give you an impression of it’s height?
En liten kikk inn i i lange rørformede blomstene. Det fremkommer ikke særlig godt på bildet, men ikke bare er røret ganske sleipt og glatt, men har også spindelvevtynne lange hår som sørger for at pollen blir overført.

A quick look into the depth of the tubeformed flower itself. The insides are pretty slippery and even if you unfortunately can’t see it in my picture, the insides are riddled with super-thin long hairs that guarantee that pollen are transferred.
Når det kommer til det dekorative, så måtte jeg gi etter for fristelsen og benytte meg av litt kreativt arbeid med dybdeskarphet og kontrast. Som ‘non-figurativ kunst’ kunne dette kanskje ha hengt på en vegg? 🙂

When it comes to decorativity, I had to give in to temptation here:  By using a bit of creativity regarding the ‘depth of field’ and ‘contrasts’ here, I could perhaps hang this on my wall somewhere? 🙂
