Lupins, part 4: The best of the best...






... and don't worry, these photos, taken some weeks ago, are my last lupin post... this year. :)










The Russell hybrids (Lupinus x russellii, L. x regalis) are so worth their Swedish name regnbågslupin,  "rainbow lupin".






Usein kirjolupiinin kukinnon vanhimmat kukat ovat tummempia kuin muut, mutta tämän kukinnon värit hämmästyttävät minutkin joka vuosi. :)










Tässä alkaa jo siemeniä muodostua.






Thank you all so very much for your lovely comments. Consider yourselves hugged! :)

Tunnelmallisia elokuun iltoja teille, ihanat! :)

  1. Suloisen meheviä, sopivia lupiinin nälkääni 😀 Pörriäinenkin sukeltelee niissä selvästi mielihaluunsa 💜Toivottavasti saan aikaan mennä metsästämään tienvarsilupiinien siemeniä joku päivä kun niitä ei ole näkynyt olevan myytävänä missään mistä olen katsellut. Tykkäsiköhän Ida Lupino lupiineista ? 😀😎

  2. Sara I love following you on Instagram! I think you are such a talented photographer. You manage to make everything look so magical even this little bumble bee looks cute! If I were to see him in real life I'm sure he wouldn't look so cute LOL but you make everything look dreamy! Thank you for all your wonderful inspiration. Un abbraccio, Silvana

  8. Dear Sara, I am so glad to see that you have enabled comments once again. I never tire of seeing your beautiful lupins and it saddens me that I may have to wait until 2018 to feast my eyes on these stunning blooms again!! The little bee is adorable 💗 Enjoy your month of August. This Summer seems to be flying by.
    With hugs from us xx

  13. Yes, 'the best of the best', but I have loved them all. They are my Candian daughter in laws favourite, so whenever I see their beauty it brings me closer to her. Thanks for these delightful sunny images.
