Growing wild

This is a wider shot of the wild lupins which grow all around Lunenburg NS. Wonderful to see these everywhere. For Casablanca who said she hadn't heard of wild lupins. I have tried many times to grow these in my garden but have never been successful.

Really? You’ve been unable to grow them? I’ve done it. Collect the seeds when the pods are dry...and scatter the seeds where you want them to grow. They should take off and in a year or two bloom beautifully

Aren't they lovely in the wild, mixed with the little spots of wild yellow flowers

@casablanca They have the most delicious heady fragrance that fills the room! A bit peppery, rather than sweet, and anyone would love sitting in a room filled with that aroma! Lovely memories, Pam...I was telling Mike and Lana about them...and we think they may come up sometime this summer!

Lovely shot. Lupins grow wild in NZ too, fabulous swathes of them, so colourful and photogenic. Surprising they won't grow in your garden, we planted a punnet of seedlings one year and now they self-seed everywhere.

They are such beautiful flowers. I remember a lot of them in NZ, not so many here in the warmer climate though.
