Story: Most people know the flower “foxglove”. the name itself is derived from a legend that says the evil Fairies gave a fox the flower petals to put on his toes so that he could rob the chicken house without being heard – thus the name “fox glove.” I, however, prefer to think of a pair of pink gloves that a tastefully elegant fox would wear to her rabbit friend’s garden tea party. Mouse and Squirrel would be there, too and Mole would bring the shortbread.
