[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I had seen a mass of blue flowers on my way to and from work for more than a week and finally stopped one day. I found they were very short lupine. I just found two possibilities for identification in my Washington wildflowers book. Elegant Lupine and Bicolored Lupine. I think due to the short stature and white petals this is bicolored lupine. It grows to 25 cm (10") tall. Blooms April to June and ranges west of the Cascade mountains at low elevations and on dry ground and also in the Columbia River Gorge and east Klickitat country.

I thought they were Lupines. We used to have yellow (NZ) on our land when I was a child. But now I don't think I've seen any for many years. Such beautiful flowers, especially these royal blue ones. They look great in front of your BG. Well shown Julie. TFS.

I've seen this Lupine several years ago, somewhere near San Francisco. Lupinus genera has a lot of species, some of them interbreed, and it's hard to identify 100% an individual belonging to a certain species. I think your lupine here (as well as what I've encoutered in California) is Lupinus bicolor - Bicolored Lupine.

Very nice shot Julie! They sure are beautiful, I've seen many too back and forth to work, but haven't stopped yet! I love the blurry background in this photo, it compliments the clear sharpness of the flowers well.
