I love lupines. They are easy to grow and showy. The bees and butterflies love them. And they seed in naturally. Consider adding these to your perennial border or cottage garden!

If you have children (or even if you don't) do check out the picture book "Miss Rumphius" by Barbara Cooney from your local library. It's about the Lupine lady and one of my favorites!
