Lupine Jewels


    Lupines are one of my favorite plants.  I love both its star-burst foliage and its elongated flowers.  This time of year when lupine plants are small and just beginning to grow, they have another attraction for me; the spring raindrops that they catch and hold in their leaves.  They look like jewels.  

    I am not sure what it is about the leaves that keep the drops from flattening and running off, but makes for some delightful effects.
