Even though their beauty doesn’t last long, the few days these flowers share their presence is enough to appreciate for a lifetime.

Lupin Love

In love with the lupins on our property! There are a few different colours right now but I thought I would just make an appreciation post for each. Loving the purple & white as it is so angelic and delicate! The lupins are giving a real nice pop of colour throughout our overgrown yard.
