Pink Lupine

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
 
Pink Lupine
Pink Lupine
These beautiful wild lupines grow all over the place on the coast. I love the pinks with the purples!! They are so beautiful and hard to believe they are considered weeds!! (Not to me) Have a great day!

They consider them wild, I think I have paid money for them here. Doesn't matter they are gorgeous Shelly, I also love the pink with the purple backgrond.

Weeds?? Wow...I remember them all over the place as Alan and I drove to Lake Placid, NY. I had no idea what they were called, but was fascinated with all the color variances. Beautiful work, Shelly.

I always thought lupine was a wildflower...maybe only in Maine they're weeds? :-) Regardless, super job on this, Shelly!

Shelly I will never catch up, you have filled your gallery with so many great shots while I am gone. Love this, we are finding them in the high country out here in MT. I can't get close to this shot, beautiful work.
Thanks for commenting on my photos while I am gone.
