{floral friday #24}
Happy Friday!! I hope you all had a wonderful week and now have a wonderful start into the weekend!
This week’s featured flower is the lupine — I photographed (guess where?!) in my mom’s backyard. ;)
I love the looks of lupines. Beautiful!

A few facts about lupines:
  • There are more than 300 varieties of lupine plants around the world.
  • Lupine plants have the ability to fix nitrogen levels in the soil. (source)
  • Lupines come in blue, pink, white, yellow and purple. The flowers are useful for dyeing cloth. (source)
  • The scent of lupine blossoms is like that of honey.
