Lupines in the Adirondacks



We were at the lake house this weekend....sprucing things up for all the family and friends expected for the July 4th holiday......



This field of lupines is across the street and every spring I am amazed at the beauty of these self seeding perennials........



The colors remind me of a Monet painting....



It is truly a marvel....a gift of Mother Nature.....from God........



Aside from scrubbing and cleaning and washing and planting....I took quite a few pictures....



Enough pictures to keep me posting all week.....



But for now......these pink, blue, lavender and purple lupines will have to suffice....



I hope you enjoyed the show!



Take care, Laura

Oh this looks like what I imagine heaven must look like. Here, there is nothing like those kind of flowers! So pretty! I remember seeing lupines in Maine and thinking they were too beautiful to believe!

You lucky thing!!

Enjoy!

That is a breathtaking sight! Even though I live on a regular plot of land and not an open field, I WILL have lupine next summer-off to the nursery! I will keep your pictures in my mind until then!

Those are absolutely beautiful. I guess they are native to the US - they only grow in gardens in Europe. What a wonderful gift to see them growing wild like that!

Those lupines are to die for. My customers would kill for those. I've heard that they grow great up there because of the cooler weather but I had no idea.
