Such a beautiful blue.
Such a striking blue. Ours are over now….
Beautiful shot ..and words
did not know about the Roman connection–interesting!
Great shot! Purple is my favorite color! :)
Gorgeous! I love lupines and there are never enough in my yard!
Our state wildflower, the bluebonnet, is a lupine and it indeed conquers fields with its seeds. In the springtime here in Texas we have vast “seas” of bluebonnets and they are beautiful as are these in your photo. Blessings, Natalie :)
I love lupins which are weeds in so many places but will NOT grow in my garden, lol…
Isn’t that ironic! I am struggling also to keep lupines in my garden. Of the four I planted last fall, only one made it through the winter and is blooming prolifically. I’ll save the seeds and scatter them around….here is hoping…
Very nice and beautiful!
I am with sulis303! But someone told me they can be hard to grow! We will just have to enjoy Seedbud’s photos! :)
Gorgeous capture – I procrastination so long on our lupins I completely missed my chance, lol!
Excellent verse …
Lupine is magnificent! I want to plant some and take beautiful photos like yours. Now…. if I can only learn to write prose like you do.
