The last survivor of three purple and white lupins we got a few years ago. We moved them here, we moved them there. And finally put the survivor out with the lavender and day lilies out of sheer desparation. "And I'm very greatful, thank you very much," If we had any bumble bees they'd be lovin' it. But, very few bumbles the last couple of years.

I wonder what it is about the south side of the house? Rhodies and blueberries love the location. Everything else? Sound of a very large raspberry being blown.

It is supposed to get over eighty today. I'll believe it when it happens and if it does it'll only be because the sun is just about as high as it's going to get this year. Very, very strange year.

The lupine is just beautiful! We had them when we lived in Alaska and they were among my favorites there!!

I hope you're having a good weekend!!

So far, so good. The lupins looked so small when I transplanted them last year and they're on steroids or something. The spikey foliage are stella d'oro daylilies. I'm hoping for some shots when they bloom. the purple and gold should be spectacular. And then there's the red barberry hidden in the middle of everything, going "what am I chopped liver?" No you're just the faithful workhorse of the garden.

Got up way over 80 up here today. We did production at the restaurant and then we came home and just sat in the yard. It was lovely. Felt like the first day of summer!
