Two years ago I planted some lupine-seeds. Last year I had some flowers but now the plant is delivering some astonishing flowers in red and purple. 
The plant is growing in a big planter otherwise the snails will have a feast with the young leaves when it is in the garden and I can kiss my lupine goodbye. 
This is probably the last year cause they will bloom for only two years. I will wait next spring if the plant will come back and if not than I'm gonna try something else. 
The lupine is very attractive for the small common carder bee. They are on the lupine every time they can. Especially when the sun is shining on the lupine. 
It's always fun to photograph a small bumblebee in the air.

Geweldige foto. Lupines doen het niet in mijn tuin helaas.

@betwixt_the_hedges Ze hebben best veel zon nodig en lusten wel een slokje water bij warm weer. Ik ben ook bang dat dit het laatste jaar is. Daarom zou ik nu al zaadjes moeten hebben voor dit jaar. Daar ben ik niet zo goed in en hou ik meer van bloemen die lang in de tuin staan ******

Lovely capture Johan **************** We have a lot of lupins outside our Village, blu ones. Yours are more beautiful and the composition becomes great. Lupins are not good for the origin plants because they take over the are..

@ulfkaunitz Thanks Ulf. I have never seen lupins in the wild where I live and never realised that they could be a pest. That's a shame for the original plants. I hope everything works out well.

Super photo Johan. Hopefully some seeds will drop from the pods and you'll get some baby lupin plants next year.
