Milkweed and Lupine

above and below: Common Milkweed (Asclepias syriaca)

Lupine (genus Lupinus)

Photographed today at the Glover town clerk office, where grandson Wingnut and I went to sign up for swimming lessons. His photos of these flowers can be seen here. When clicked, these photos will open, full size, in a new window.

  1. Lupines take me back to my childhood. We grew them in our garden in spite of the northern temps and winds.

  2. Thanks for your visit to my blog, Brookville Daily Photo this morning. I hope you enjoyed my post today showing the honey bee and the hollyhock flower. And I wanted you to know I was here to repay your visit and comment with one of my own comments. Kind of like "Kilroy" was here...remember those drawings everyone used to make?

    I enjoyed your blog post for today and I thought the photography was good. Milkweed is kind of an invasive plant but I used to grow it here and then using underground rhizomes it spread to my garden and into my boxwood bushes. If there was some way to control that I would still have it because the Monarch butterflies depend on it so much.

  3. Andree these photos are a true festival of colour to ones eyes.
    Very beautiful.

  4. Very beautiful. Don't close-ups change what we think we saw before. Hmmm does that make any sense. Love the closeups. MB

  5. These really are exquisite pictures... they will make me look at lupines in a very different way now.. Excellent post
