|Tekapo in NZ, 2009, they know how to grow lupins!|
|New pink lupin in my garden. Gifts are best!|
Lupins remind me of two places - Prince Edward Island and New Zealand. This time of year lupins grow in the ditches and fields of PEI and create a beautiful sight. The Handyman's parents came from PEI and we would travel back at the end of June and see the wonderful flowers. Strangely his grandparents had none in front of their home. So our legacy was to dig up lupins and put them in the ditch in front of their home. I now have some of those purple lupins in my garden. This pink one was a gift from someone whose father had prized them.
