The First Wildflower!

I took the dog for a walk in the fields near our home and found the first wildflowers of the season!


Hurray for the Lupine!


Hurray for Outdoor Wednesday!
Thank you Susan at A Southern Daydreamer for hosting!


Thank you Mr. Groundhog!

  1. I loooove lupines. How wonderful to find it in the wild. My favorite memory of lupines is walking through a field on Mt. Cook in New Zealand and there were lupines everywhere. They were about 3 feet tall and every shade of pinks, yellows, and blues. It was just beautiful! So everytime I see a lupine I remember that trip.

  4. I have pink ones in my garden that I planted. What a treat to have them growing wild. And such a pretty color.

    Thanks for the taste of spring!

  8. How lucky your are being able to see flowers like these so soon. Everything here is dry and no rain. Nothing can survive like that. I pray we get rain soon.

  9. Hi Kate-

    I found your blog this evening through the same party-
    I linked to Outdoor Wednesdays too.

    I have never seen lupines.
    They almost look like Texas bluebonnets!

  16. Hi Kate, this is beautiful. We too have begun to see wild flowers and forsythia, a beautiful yellow flowering bush and sometimes as big as a tree. Come on Spring.
    Hugs, Jeanne

  18. Your lupine is so pretty. We don't have lupines in Alabama. I love all flowers but especially blue ones.

    Your food posts are beautiful. You are very good photographing your delicious food. Very inspiring.

    Thanks for visiting my blog.
