I'm back! I was sick for a couple of weeks...a summer cold. I can't complain, though, because I haven't had a cold for many, many years. For the past few days, I haven't been able to access my desktop computer but that seemed to sort itself out somehow. And we finally got a couple of days of sunshine (I almost forgot what sunshine was!) so I have been busy in the garden. Not too much photo taking has been going on, but I did grab my camera when the sun finally came out and took a few photos of our lupins. Lupins grow like crazy in the wild everywhere in Nova Scotia. But it has taken me a few years to finally get them growing in my yard!

While driving back and forth to Halifax this past week, I've been admiring the lupins. Yes, they are everywhere on the highways. I remember trying to grow some in Toronto, but had no luck. I wonder if the deer would eat them?
Love the dew drop pictures. :} And thanks for your well wishes on my post. Our mutual friend will be here soon. We'll have to meet up.

I'm loopy for Lupins ! Just love 'em. Folk told me that they don't transplant well, but I dug some up and bunged them into my yard anyhoo. I am happy to report that they did take and are doing fine.

Glad you're feeling better.

I love lupines. Our many drought years have stunted ours into not even trying to come up anymore, sadly. Your photo of the dew drops is wonderful. PS I love love love your house.

The fields of Lupins in Nova Scotia are wonderful. Such a beautiful blue!
