lupin--after the blooms

Being still quite new to gardens and flowers, I find strange things fascinating. This is the remains of a lupin that has flowered.

I don't think you have to be new to appreciate such detail! It's fascinating, and nicely captured, too! Love the angle. :)

Really nice pic, I like the Lupin flowers, my mom has a lot of them in her garden!

Eve said...

Oh, they look so soft and fluffy! What a fun photo! :)

Nice macro Taranaki! Those fuzzy pods are seed pods - lupin is in the pea family so if you wait a little longer they'll mature and you'll be able to plant more of them. I love the furry detail on the pods, nicely done!

Check out my belated MM (Tiny Tuesday?!?) post Common Puffball.

Cheers,

Wow, I have never seen lupine do that before.
I am guessing that mine probably is not lupine! Well, i guess it is true, we learn something new every day!
