Foxglove - associated with fairies and elves as they gave gloves to the fox







so he could raid the chickens and escape harm. Said that if the fairies wore

these 'gloves' they could do anything. Was believed to be dangerous to cut

foxglove but once you'd done so and lived it was a good defense against

the little people. In Wales it's juice was rubbed into a floor in the shape

of a cross to protect the home from the fey folk. It could also be used to

kill a changeling child. Also believed that the souls of the dead inhabited

the flowers thus the alternate names of 'bells', 'thimbles' or 'deadman's fingers'.
