Lupine_2016

The lupine have exploded.  I was gone for a few days at a Quilt Show and was shocked at how fast they grew.  Blooms and bees everywhere.  Gives a new meaning to “This place is buzzing”.

A Few Fox Gloves have also appeared.  They are wild and just show up when and where they feel like it.  More are on the way.
