columbine and lupines
The first thing I see when I come home, just peeking over the front wall, are the lupinus arboreus, the tree lupines. I plant them there to hide the unsightly wall.
Columbine are also in bloom, self seeding themselves here and there. The older ones are very tall this year.
Although I have only pink ones seeding themselves, suddenly a purple-blue one has appeared. How lovely!
Lupines in the morning light, the tops of the flowers glowing in the early sunlight.
