Lupin

For the past month, the roadsides here have been bursting with color. Large stalks filled with purple flowers line the Sterling Highway from Homer all the way to Anchor Point and beyond. It’s a kind of lupin, and I’m not sure if they were planted there, or if they just grow naturally along the roadways.

It also seems to grow on the edges of the muskeg fields (sort of a spongy, moist bog) we have all over the place. I found this patch near our house yesterday.

Later today, once I get everything configured, I’ll kick off my re-purposed photography site with more photos from this series.
