Sky Blue Lupine

21 Mar

The Sky Blue Lupine is a beautiful flower that grows in sandy dry areas of Florida. I noticed this clump while driving along a county road. The road runs along a border of a local park, so I promptly turned in and took a walk along the trail. About 50 different clumps of  plants were coming into full bloom. I took a photo showing the road in the background so you can see just how close these are  along the roadside. Luckily the park is adjacent so this Lupine community is preserved.
