I have seen that on a few other wild flowers but not a fox glove. Could you post up a larger pic?

It's so weird! I could have sworn the stem was dry, dessicated and dead. I was shaking the seeds out as I wandered past. The ones I did manage to cut down were dry as a dry thing.. nature... eh? whacky mare.. Laughing
