He had planted lupine seeds years ago in the field behind his house. They come up year after year and show their glory. Every time I see a lupine now, I think of him. Thanks for this reminder today of a wonderful, gentle soul who now enjoys beauty beyond our comprehension.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyJudy June 03, 2011 6:54 AMBeautiful blooms...especially en masse! And they are promising sunshine...so it may be the perfect weekend for lupin hunting. It's high time we all got outdoors.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyVeeJune 03, 2011 7:18 AMThey'll have some trouble rooting out all those lupines...such an invasive plant, but oh so striking. I just dug out my "Miss Rumphius" book for the grands.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyellen b.June 03, 2011 7:25 AMNow that's my kind of adventure. Hope you find a bunch!ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyAnonymousJune 03, 2011 7:47 AMBeautiful and your peonies to start your posts are WONDERFUL...Love them, and wish I could grow them here in the south.Have a blessed weekend.Sandy in NCReplyDeleteRepliesReplyLorrieJune 03, 2011 8:09 AMSuch gorgeous blooms - enjoy the day!ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyThoughts on Life and Millinery.June 03, 2011 8:19 AMHow could I have forgotten about Miss Rumphius? Will the mall feature store that you will enjoy visiting year around as much as you enjoyed the seasonal lupine displays?So glad you bogged how it looked before so when the grands are older you can show them how the place looked back when they were little.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyAnnelieseJune 03, 2011 9:12 AMWhere's the mall????Lupines or shopping? I'd like both .... Maybe they could do what Seven Oaks did... the oaks are no more (which is too bad) ... but the mall kept the name...ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyHappy@HomeJune 03, 2011 2:15 PMGood luck finding lots of lupines. They sure are beautiful.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyPondsideJune 04, 2011 12:56 AMYou go for it, Lovella! I'm a big believer in getting the old seeds/plants from construction lots before they all disappear.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyPat @ Mille Fiori FavoritiJune 04, 2011 9:22 AMIt's sad to thinl thhose pretty lupines are gone to make way for a mall :( Wild flowers are so beautiful!ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyHeather L.June 04, 2011 5:58 PMLupins are just so beautiful! We don't really have them here in Indiana. My parents took us to PEI one summer and that's what we remember: the sea, the red earth, and the lupins, everywhere! What a shame yours are being traded in for a mall. :( Enjoy any you find!!Thanks for your prayers for Laura. She's doing so well and we are just trying to emotionally recover from everything.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyJo-AnnJune 05, 2011 3:40 AMI have a lupine blooming for the first time in my garden this year -- I may have to plant more -- it's so beautiful (red)!ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyTrishJune 05, 2011 9:10 AMoh my soo very beautiful.
