lupins lean

Yesterday our drive in western New Brunswick was dominated by two things: the wind and the roadside wildflowers.

~

Buttercups, bunchberry, bluets and lupins fill the ditches with bloom. The lupins  (Lupinus sp.) dominate – mostly purple and blue, but occasionally white, pink or even yellow. The wind was blowing so hard, you could use the flower heads and leaves to measure wind direction!
