Desert lupine

The highway along Deep Canyon, Highway 74, is now littered with desert lupines. They first sprang up about 2 weeks ago. They were very faint then, but now they are in full bloom. I stopped last Sunday as I traveled up the mountain and took these photos. I wanted to capture them before they disappeared. They don't last long, only a few weeks, and then they disappear until the next year.

  1. Desert lupines? I never knew there was such a thing! How amazing! I've loved lupines forever but don't know of any that grow well in the sultry, hot, sticky south. Thank you so much for sharing!
