Beautiful! You captured it wonderfully :)-Jaime
Once on a trip to Colorado I saw some beautiful lupines in pink.
very pretty :o)
Thanks....good to hear from you!
Just gorgeous.We have lupins on the allotment.I bought one each of what was supposed to be red, white and blue - they turned out pink and yellow! We now have quite a lot of them as they have self seeded. If I put them in the garden they get eaten by slugs and snails, but at the allotment we are less bothered by pests- I think it's because there aren't as many places to hide as there are in my overgrown garden!
Slugs and snails always love dark and cool places. But, I still love overgrown gardens with secret places!
Wow, just lovely! Suzy x
Suzy, the Texas Highways are lined with Bluebonnets this month.
I think your photography captured it beautifully. I never knew Texas had fields of bluebonnets like that...it is incredible! How long with they stay in bloom? Now that I am looking at that flower, I just realized that we have some of tham that bloom in a certain spot every year on our property..I never knew what they were but when they bloom, we always get the girls and dogs and get lots of photos in them! Unfortunately, it is a small area, but still beautiful. I am glad to know what they are!
I know for a fact that lupines also grow in Colorado and England.
That haze of blue is magnificent, bluebonnets are beautiful - especially en masse like that. I love the way Nature gives us such wonderful treats - I also really like the 'silvery' fence posts.
The amazing thing is that they grow all over Texas like this....and only last for a few weeks. You are right, Nature does give us wonderful treats!
Gorgeous Meggie! I find it breathtaking to see an entire field of bluebonnets often broken by the red and yellow of Indian paintbrushes. I've just seen large clumps of bluebonnets around here, but I'm just as excited seeing them as they haven't been around for several years.
Hi Janet....I did see some pastures with the Indian painbrushes mixed in. I guess we had enough rain at the right time to give this great showing of bluebonnets.
What a beautiful blue field.HugsElna
Thank you, Elna.
They look amazing Meggie. We get similar effects a little later in the year when the english bluebells are out.You can visit woods where they completely carpet the land.
I hope you will publish some photos of the bluebells when they bloom. I don't believe I have ever seen them.
They are beautiful. Stunning pictures I remember my Aunt visited Texas several years ago and brought back some seeds, i Think, but i don't know if she every tried growing them. My mother got a fridge magnet with a picture of the flower on it.
You may have a variety of lupines that grow in Scotland...I know they grow in England. Maybe I should get a fridge magnet with the Scottish Thistle on it!
