The march of spring continues

I have three lupines growing from the tens of seed that I scattered in my yard.  This is probably arroyo lupine
(Lupinus succulentus), which grows locally. They were blooming all around the hill last week and while I was gone last weekend the ones in my yard finally caught up, but I wasn't home during a time with enough light to photograph them until this morning.

They really look magnificent.

Juli spotted some all on her own the other day and called me excitedly.  Of course she now wants some for the San Pedro annex too ;-). I was pleased to read that given water they will sprout at any time of the year.


  1. Love the lupins.(Have you seen the Chatsworth House lupin garden?)
    This will be my 8th year trying to grow them.
    Tulips at 2" and counting!
    We shall have to make do with our latest issue of Canadian Gardening until April.

  2. Thanks Lisa. I wasn't aware of the Chatsworth House lupine garden until you mentioned it. Thanks! Here's a photo of it:
    It looks enticing!

    I sure hope for more lupines in future years from seed from the three that I have going.
