I am supposed to be at Mount Rainier right now, on our annual trip. But it got canceled. Every year is different, depending on when the snow melts, how warm the summer is and how much rainfall, you can have totally different flowers blooming.
These are from the year 2014. It was a cool, misty week and the lupines were amazing.
In the morning light these lupines made me feel like I was in a fairy tale…or is that ferry tale?
Yesterday I awoke at the beach and the pups and I walked the beach while the sun was still low. One of dad’s neighbors has a wildflower (they are actually planted, lupines aren’t native to Vashon) garden.
I felt very far away from the stresses of the world.
