It's been awhile coming, two years in fact! June 2009 we took a short vacation to Boston and Boothbay Harbor, Maine. Off to watch the Lobstah Boat Races and a few days of R&R. And one of the things we loved the most about Maine? The lupine flowers! Just brilliant spikes of color coating the fields!
So our souvenir from the trip? Some packs of lupine seeds to plant in our home's flower gardens. Now these aren't the flowers if you're looking for immediate gratification (remind you of real estate?). They don't bloom the first year, but we're in year two now!! So out back we've got these beauties. In the front garden we have a different variety with a few colors, and in the planter pots, plenty more seeds started to populate another place in the yard! These souvenirs will be bringing joy to our home for many years!
Hope you have fantastic Memorial Day Weekend!
