Mountain lupines~Our World Tuesday~052113

I was complaining that there weren't many mountain lupines this year and then last weekend, up near Anza, CA, I found these!  There were two other, darker patches up on the mountain road, but they were on spots without turnouts or enough road to safely walk out on it without being hit by traffic.  So, I settled for these. They are a little bit pale, but at least they are blooming. There are a couple of patches of California poppies nearby, too.  So, our spring hasn't been a total washout!  Aren't they pretty?  Our World Tuesday for May 21, 2013.  To visit OWT, please go to:  http://ourworldtuesdaymeme.blogspot.com/

I love the lupines! I saw bunches of them along Lake Superior near Duluth, MN.

My mountain lupines are still under snow in CO, so I'm glad to see yours.

I used to look forward to lupines every year, and miss them like crazy--until I finally got it through my thick skull that Bluebonnets are, in fact, lupines! We've had a bumper crop of these versions in north Texas this year because of the rain. I've never planted them, but will probably put some in to naturalize when we get rid of a section of front-yard grass. Now I'm all inspired. Thanks for the lovely shot--and for the visit to the farm; I hooted over your story about the chicken in the root cellar.
