Fox Glove (Digitalis purpurea), Southern section Lost Coast, Sinkyone Wilderness State Park, California

This species is common and widespread all across the island of Terceira.
We spent a week on the island of Terceira in the Azores from 15-22 July, 2013. The Azores are a group of 9 small islands owned by Portugal, about 900 miles out in the Atlantic from Portugal. The plant and animal fauna is basically European, but there are many introduced plants I am told. The island of Terceira is approx. 10 X 18 miles in size with two cities and many towns and about 56,000 inhabitants.
