Lovely Lupine

We've thought the white lupine looks so lovely next to the dwarf blue spruce in our backyard. The colors and texture mixed together is quite dramatic.

I've loved lupines since I read the wonderful book by Barbara Cooney - Miss Rumphius. Her illustrations are so comforting to my eyes and mind (the story is interesting too).

Lupines grow wild like that, in large clusters, along the roads above Lake Superior; north of Duluth.

Quite, quite lovely.

We call them lupins in England. They're nice.
