A Fall Surprise

One rainy day recently (I can’t remember which, we’ve had so many this fall), I looked out the window and something pink caught my eye. I haven’t paid my flower beds much attention in the last month, but suddenly there was this pink lupine.

This lupine is a treat because I only had purple lupines. Last fall Wilderness sent me some different colored seeds and I scattered them in a few places in the garden, but didn’t make good notes. Plants started this year and grew, but they don’t usually bloom in the first year. This one did, and it’s a treat when almost all other blooms are done my garden for the year. Now I know it’s pink and I can decide if I want to leave it where it is, or move it to another spot in the spring.

    So glad one bloomed. It is very unusual for them to bloom in the fall but established ones will sometimes bloom twice. I would think twice about moving it at the size it has matured to already. They don’t take kindly to a move as the have a very long tape root.
