I think lupines are near the top of my list of favorite wild flowers that grow in our area.
They cover a small hillside slope back near our wood cutting area.
I can't resist cutting and bringing a bouquet of them inside a couple of times while they're blooming.
Unfortunately, they don't hold up well after being cut and make a real mess as their gorgeous purple petals fall off the stems. They sure are impressive while they last though.
The train to Looneyville is picking up speed.
