Lupine & Columbine

We have had such beautiful weather the last few days that it is much more tempting to head to the garden after work than to the computer. However, I have been wanting to post a few photos. We don't grow many flowers because we concentrate on edible landscaping but we do have a few things planted for the hummingbirds and butterflies. We haven't seen any butterflies around the lupine but the hummingbirds have taken to the columbine. Now I'm headed back out to the garden to work in the last bit of daylight. Hope all is growing well wherever you are!

Columbine has always been one of my favorites. Saw lupine along the roadside today on our bicycle ride.

Hope the gardening is going well. Finally finished planting our vegetables yesterday. Now we just need to lay down the newspaper and then straw so the weeds don't grow in our garden.

I love this time of year, don't you?

We must be on the same wavelength, as I posted photos of lupines and Columbines this week also. :-)
Our weather has been unseasonably hoping it cools off soon. The lettuce is already getting bitter. :-(

I planted a Columbine last year and it's doing nicely but not yet blooming, so it was fun to see yours looking so pretty. Planted my first Lupine a couple weeks ago. Would be great if it turns out looking like yours.

Thanks for visiting!
