Scenery: wildflower blossom
(Partly for my own reference, so I don’t have to Google image search again:)

So the first flowers to come up and blossom in my yard this year are perennial lupine, with lovely conical clusters of purple flowers. This is the first year they’ve come up, but they must be from the mix I planted two years ago.

I also have some coreopsis getting tall, although that hasn’t started budding yet. And a few days ago plumtreeblossom and I planted a bunch of seeds, including lots and lots of baby snapdragons, which are already a green carpet of little sprouts.

I love my darling, who brings flowers and love into my life.

A couple of years ago I snagged a dried lupine seed head from our local ice cream place. The ice cream place has wonderful gardens. I shook the seed head all over one of my beds. I got one seedling that grew into a flowering plant. The plant proceeded to produce more seedlings and now they've spread to the next bed over. I'm beginning to think about pulling out some of the seedlings.

Your lupines or your life!
