I decided the lupine was nicer than a photo of the one and a half hostas
the oh-so-cute deer munched off. 😡 The lupine is like the fabled passion flower in my Raleigh garden: prolific and invasive. Going to have to monitor closely, or it will take over my garden. On the other hand, someday when I am gone, there could be a meadow full of lupine. It makes me kind of happy to think about.
