from my sweetie

Mark got home a little early today and when he pushed the door open, he was carrying these. I have heard about Lupine for years but have never seen them. Aren't they gorgeous?!! and don't you just love the impromtu vase he made out of an empty 40 he had in his car? He says there is a huge field of these growing wild along the back parking lot where he works. I want to dig a bunch up this fall and plant in my yard. I have to go to Iron River on Thursday for my physical therapy evalutation, so I will bring my camera and take a few photos. He told me to put in a "real" vase but I like this one better. :-)

Shold we be worried that he had an enpty in the car? Tell him to watch where he got them and to collect some seeds for you - those would look lovely along your fence.

What pretty flowers! You have to take pictures to share with us. I would love to see a whole field of them!
I'll be checking in to see the pincushions!
