Wistful Wednesday?

Stately bearing
Straightly standing
Greatly, grandly
mid the
strands -

She stands.

Hi Kathleen, I love lupin, too! I hadn't grown it for a Looong time, so it's looking pretty good to me! :-)

Hi Gail, I'm doing well. I feel as though I'm behind with my yardwork! It's taken a couple of days for my energy level to catch up from last week. I did get a few things planted today(!) Oh!!! I will post a photo soon!! Guess what is growing in two of my milk jug incubators... Tennessee Coneflowers, thanks to your seeds!! :-) Yea!

Lupine in bloom! This is the first one I've seen. They are one of my favorites.
Beautiful coloring on the iris. Looks like you had a nice sunny day :)

Gail said...

Shady...Great news on all fronts! I am excited that the TN coneflower is coming up! gail

Shady, I have no lupine, although there are lupine fields in our area. Tourists come. A few. And I just bought a frilly bearded iris, but it is not blooming yet. I can't wait.

I love lupine, too!

Rosemary said...

Love the lupine! Your garden is far ahead of this area. Iris still to come.

Catherine, I'm behind on my responses. We were out of town for the weekend. We had Lupine at our other house quite a number of years ago. They were so Beautiful! I'd planted them from seed. I guess they're biennial, but they reseeded easily.

Gail, You and me Both! ;-) I'll keep you posted!

Commonweeder, I MUST get over to visit your site. I don't know where the time goes, these days!

Hi Monica! :-)

Rosemary, I think that's a little part of the attraction of visiting each other's blog sites. We get to see "what's happening" all over... and become inspired by what will soon be happening in our own gardens! :-)
