Lovely Lupins

Three years ago, I planted a couple of lupin seeds in my garden.  Every year since, I have had a lovely plant with enormous green star-shaped leaves, but no flowers.

This was the year that the flowers arrived!

So beautiful.  Pinky-peachy with pale yellow new flowers. 

We had two weeks of beautiful sunny days, with everyday a promise of rain, that never came.

Until last Friday.  A P.A. Day (of course) the rain did not stop the entire day.  It was miserable.

My beautiful lupins.  Squashed, faded, bent over and mushed into the soil.
