A Lupine Flower With a Guest

Tuesday, July 14, 2020,

That amazingly beautiful flower is called Lupine. I only know that because my friend Sue Avery identified it for me. Sue was also able to explain to me that this is considered a single flower as opposed to several separate flowers. She added that a flower of this type is called a Raceme. Racemes are clusters of flowers that grow from the same base. So what looks to you and I like a pretty bunch of flowers may be entirely different to a botanist. I’m not at all sure that bees care one way or another. JK
