We went to a picnic party over the Memorial Day weekend. There were numerous gardens and fields that we passed as we made our way up to Acworth, New Hampshire. Along the way, I noticed a few spots that would make for beautiful pictures. On the way home, I stopped to snap the above shot. The air at the end of the day is really still and when I got out of the car to take this shot, the peppery smell of the lupines was overwhelmingly spicy and sweet! It was the most intense moment!
In a more civilized setting, I took a picture of the lupines in my sister-in-law's garden ... the hybrids are just as pretty at the wild purples, don't you think? I am always reminded of Miss Rumphius and her sprinkling lupine seeds everywhere she went along the coast of Maine. Oh, that the world was carpeted with lupines!
