Poppies and Lupine

California Poppies and Purple Lupine, Hidden Falls Regional Park, Auburn, California

I love the contrast between the orange Poppies and the purple Lupine so much, I am posting another version of the photo I posted yesterday.

Windy Point Trail 2008 wildflower update

A few weeks ago, I wrote a post about the Windy Point Trail. Jeff and I have not been there yet this year. But, a couple of our friends were there a couple of weeks ago and reported that the California Poppies, Lupine and Goldfields were putting on a great show. 

I’m not sure how much longer they will last, but most likely for a couple more weeks or so. If you can’t make it up there this year, be sure to put it on your list for next year!

That sure is a lot of lupine. I think lupine are one of the prettiest wildflowers. Blue Bonnets are awesome too as I think they are related.

We seem to be having a record year for Lupine. I don’t remember ever seeing this much.

I am looking forward to another wildflower shoot very soon!

Sherri beautiful photo. Indeed the growing conditions needed for California vs. Arctic Lupine are substantially different. Regardless both are incredibly beautiful. Thanks for the link to this post. BTW I had intended to respond to your Blue Angels posts a while back but got side tracked. Those photos were great as was the story about discovering the show.
