Recoupin’ with the lupine

Feeling weary? Down? Angry? Imitate the leapin’ lupines (Big-Leaf Lupine/Lupinus polyphyllus). That will cheer you up, or at least give you a good stretch.

The Big-leaf Lupine by the office got ferociously battered by the rain last weekend. Some of it was knocked over cIMG_0285lupin recoupinompletely (I don’t recall this ever happening before–the Lupine is pretty sturdy). But this picture, taken on Tuesday, shows resilience in action. The spires of blossoms bent up 90 degrees to vertical.

Makes me want to do some yoga moves!
