It is Maine, next door, about 35-miles away as the crow flies, that is famous for its abundant extravagance of Lupines. But, we have some small patches too — like this, off Route 11, in New Durham. My pictures don’t do them justice. It was raining, dark & misty. So, the colors are washed out. But, I am sure you can appreciate what a sight they are. Enjoy.

This was insane. I have never seen so many Lupines in such abandon profusion. It was Lupines gone wild.

This was on ‘Great Cranberry Island’, in Maine, off ‘Acadia’, on June 27, 2017 — the 3rd day of our 8th trip to Acadia. This was my first time to Cranberry; having visited Acadia’s Isle au Haut in September 2015.

Contrary to what some claim the Lupine is NOT Maine’s state flower. Maine’s state flower, true to what can be a confusing state, is actually NOT a flower, it is the White Pine Cone. Go figure!

End of June probably is the right time for Lupines though I did not see Lupines in such volume on the mainland. Actually I didn’t see that many. So, it was interesting. I wanted to talk to some folks about it, but did not get the chance. Maybe on our next visit to Acadia in September.
