I recently drove over to Leavenworth (Washington) to meet a group of friends for a little reunion. Leavenworth is a Bavarian-themed town just on the east side of Steven’s Pass over the North-Central Cascades. We stayed at a the Icicle Village Resort and had a great time reminiscing and laughing. We had a couple hours where we were free to wander the town, shopping, eating or taking photos. I found this nice patch of lupine … a little crop job and you can’t even see the miniature golf course just beside it.
A friend has this collection in their garden. The lesson is “don’t use your shovel as a pry bar”. Some lessons are hard to learn.
Another bloom from my garden. We have had a record-breaking cold wet spring which has stayed through June (so far). The long range forecast doesn’t look much better. But the flowers like it.
These are from my yard. I cut them way back last fall and they seemed to like it.
Just a nice flower photo to brighten up your winter day (assuming you are in the northern hemisphere). I tried this one in black and white and it just didn’t do anything for me. Maybe it was my mood at the time, or maybe this one just wanted to be in color. So, here it is.
