06/14/17 Lupines on MDI

Posted: June 18, 2017 in Uncategorized

This is the first year we were early enough to see the Lupines in bloom. They are all over Mount Desert Island and we found several fields loaded with them. Such a beautiful sight, but they only last for a short period of time. So happy we had the chance to see them. Don’t tell anyone, but lupines are actually non-native and are invasive plants here in Maine.

  1. Exquisite, Ray! Being particularly attracted to fogs ever since summers in Chatham, Mass., I cherish the lupine emerging from the mists! But each, but all, attracts, astounds. Wasn’t there a woman who started a campaign to bring lupine to that region, as a tourist attraction? What did we know about non-native plants in those days? Thank you for floral miracles. c

    Beautiful lupines, Ray. I always enjoy seeing lupines, especially the deep purple ones. I have stopped to take photos of the lupines on Rt 102A near Seawall, where you can also get a view of the ocean in the distance.
