Lupin Flowers in Maine

I was browsing through the insurmountable collection of photographs that we have gathered over the past few years. I wanted to give everybody a warm fuzzy feeling in the middle of this freezing winter.

I’m not that good with naming flowers, I had to get some help in order to put up the proper name, but these are lupin flowers.

Lupin also spelled Lupine are members of the Lupinus family that has between 200-600 different species of flowers. They are most popular in North America and South America.

An interesting fact is that they take in nitrogen from the atmosphere and turn it into ammonia, which they use to fertilize the soil for different plants.

The flowers come in a wide variety of colors including red, pink, white, and purple.
