A skulk (?) of foxgloves

This morning I went for a walk on Oswestry Hillfort.  I saw a kestral, skylarks, willow warblers and a song thrush smashing a snail on a rock.  As it has been such a grey day I wasn't keen on the photos so went with this beautiful patch of foxgloves.  Apparently the collective noun for a group of foxes is a skulk, perhaps it's the same for foxgloves? 

This afternoon I did some cutting back and tying in of various vigorous plants in the garden and cut the first two courgettes of the summer.  I'm sure that there will be many more to come!
