This year we have an abundance of Douglas Iris, but not as many as these Lupine compared to last year. I just wanted to file that as my official report.

Lupine arrives in two shades -- a true blue (((first photo))) and this more purple or violet strain.

The bright and contrasty background color caught my eye. The wind was blowing but I like the movement from the wind combined with the selective focus. The camera was probably moving too. A very moving photo I'd say.

That's right, folks, all this action taking place right now on the slopes of our beloved Mount Tamalpais, Marin County, California.

This is so Moving Don...Beautiful.
Looks like rain showers are forcasted for tomorrow but today was fabulous. I spent the morning picking up all the stickery balls that have fallen from my sycomore gum tree. Think its coming out in the next few months. its nice for shade and pretty in the fall but oh so Messy and the root system is getting very unrully. I think its goal are our pipes.
