Field of Lupines - Sugar Hill, New Hampshire
The lilacs have bowed out of the spring landscape to make away for the next wash of color - the pinks, the blues, the purples of lupine. We like these pretty, conical flowers so much, we've celebrated The Fields of Lupine Festival for the past 22 years in the towns around Franconia Notch.
Lupine are cousins to the Texas bluebonnet and over the years, their seeds have been carried on the mountains winds and have established in fields and old pastures in communities around the notch. On a pleasant late spring day, along the roadsides and at the edge of open fields, visitors take in the panorama of the notch and, in some places, undulating fields of the flowers.
