Spring has sprung in Maine and it's been a beauty - long and dry and warm. Ok, totally unheard of. Many years I have seen snow this late and though it makes one nearly crazy so late in the season, we know it comes with the territory. Putting in crops and gardens is a hold-your-breath process hoping for no frost until we get beyond the benchmark- Memorial Day.
Here's a picture of some of my lupine just starting to bloom. They are no where near where originally planted and not even close to the salmon or yellow hues that were planted in my garden. Lupine in Maine tend to revert back to their native color purple and yes, they do whatever they darn well please. True Mainers.
