Each summer when we arrive in Lunenburg, we purchase a car full of potted and hanging plants for outside the house. On the best summers, our timing is such that the wild lupines and iris are in abundance. We have a favourite secluded dirt road where we can cut all we need for bouquets in the living room, and it's fun to look back and you can't even tell anything is gone. Ken took this picture of me with enough to fill a couple of vases. It's the fragrance I wish everyone could experience...both sweet and peppery! These will last a week, leaving us time to do it once again before they fade from the fields and roadsides until next year.
