The Dude, The Husband -- A Reliable Guy

My Alphabe Thursday theme -- The Dude, The Husband
"I must take a photo of the lupine," I said to the Husband as I got off Tilda-Hilda, my trusty pink cruiser. "Have you seen it?"

The flower voluntarily chose to grow by the side of our driveway. It's the first lupine ever to grace our yard, so, of course, I had to record it.

I had a difficult time getting the right angle because of bright sunny day. I tried casting a shadow on the lupine, but when I bent over to take a photo, there went my shadow. Then, the Husband was suddenly by my side, admiring the purple beauty.

"Would you please put your shadow on it so I can take a photo?"

The Sweet Husband did.

I'm a fortunate woman, I am.

    1. Thanks, Sarah Beth. I learned down below from Jim that the Lupine and Texas Bluebonnet are cousins.

    1. It was by chance when I first bent over that I realized shade was what I needed. I'm grateful the Husband didn't walk in the house after putting his bike away.

  5. It's soooo pretty, Susie. I would have called it one of OUR Texas Bluebonnets also. But it can't be because you live in California So I asked "Yahoo answers" if there was a difference. They satisfied me with this answer:
    "Best Answer: The Texas Bluebonnet is Lupinus texensis, so it is a type of Lupine. The species is native to Texas. (There are actually several species of bluebonnet, but L. texensis is generally "the" Texas Bluebonnet) " which means yours probably is NOT a Texas Bluebonnet but rather it is another species of Lupines.
    Hope this helps, Dr. Jim

    1. Thanks, Dr. Jim. Now, I must go see a picture of a Texas Bluebonnet....Ah, I see how they can be mistaken for each other. The lupine is slender while the Texas Bluebonnet is fuller. I love learning something new. :-)
