We used to grow Lupins and lilly of the valley when we lived in Portsmouth, but they won't grow here on the chalk. In Surrey we have seen lupins growing along the side of the road. Very pretty!
Thank you for the links Jeanne! Lovely pictures!

There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it. For example, I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt.

What a great drive that would be!

May I always be the kind of person that my dog thinks I am.

Beautiful.
I have lupins, the only place I've seen them wild...well! sort of...is where there was an old cottage which was demolished years ago and the lupins still come up every year where the garden was...it's right next to a main road and they look spectacular!

I've got lily of the valley, both white and pink, planted underneath my laurels and jews mallow bushes around the waterfall, they smell gorgeous when they flower...it's a pity they make such a lot of leaf!

I don't really have a favourite flower...lol...I love so many but I suppose if I had to pick one it would be freesias...lol...or snakeshead fritillary...or astrantia...or..
And I love my caryopteris 'heavenly blue' bush, it flowers in autumn and attracts butterflies and bees.
I have lots of kiss-me-quick (red valerian) too, it seeds all over but I grow it for the hummingbird hawk moths...they love it.
