I thought this was a photo of Kin's but now I see it is yours Sunny and you took it at Annies. How come they can grow lupines and I can't? And Kin you are a day early just to confuse me which is so easy to do! LOL

Isn't this a beautiful picture!! I just fell in love with it... Lupines grow well here but I can't grow them either, Kell. I know I'm a day early but I was signed on and there was no picture assigned for today so I took care of it with this beautiful photo. :)
