  1. I do love the way Lupins grow wild in Sweden. When I visit and travel the E6 north the roadsides are bright with Lupins in many colours. Magnificent flower.
    Your photo shows this wonderfully.

    • Thank you Miriam. I think they are very beautiful, unfortunately they are invasive and threaten to take over, killing plants that are important to our ecosystem. I took this photo before destroying them.

    • I think lupins are a delight for the eye, but unfortunately I need to get rid of them. They are invasive and are taking over the landscape here (literally,) resulting in the disappearance of many native plants that are needed for the balance of the ecosystem.

    • Yes, the war is full on. I took one photo of them in front of the house before I started to clean up, and I will take an after photo when I’m finished. We are talking thousands of lupins. I’m halfway done as of this morning. It’s too hot to work during the day, but I got a few hours in this morning.

  2. I love lupine, Maria! How beautiful is this photo! They grow all over the high country of Yosemite. We have wild lupine growing on our new property (along with sunflowers) in Washington, proving this was meant to be 🙂
