|My Alphabe Thursday theme -- The Dude, The Husband|
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.

The lupine is lovely. I'm happy your reliable husband was there to help you!ReplyDelete
Me, too. :-)Delete
Lovely shot! Of course, here in Texas we call it the Texas Bluebonnet!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Sarah Beth. I learned down below from Jim that the Lupine and Texas Bluebonnet are cousins.Delete
Ah, the lupine and the Texas Bluebonnet! I always thought those two were twins! A lovely shot and an extra reliable hubby! A good man , have a great weekend!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Anne. You, as well. :-)Delete
How so creative you were to get your husband shadow so you could get a good picture, that flower is very pretty, love the color purple!ReplyDelete
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.Delete
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:ReplyDelete
"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
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. :-)Delete
Beautiful! It's a blessing to be married to a supportive spouse, like you and I are. Blessings, my friend!ReplyDelete
