They used to grow abundantly in our garden in Germany, but I never managed to get them to grow here in my valley in Japan
... until this spring and early summer !

rupinasu ルピナス lupinus, Lupinie
tachifujisoo 立藤草(たちふじそう)"standing wisteria"
noborifuji 昇り藤(のぼりふじ) "wisteria climbing up"

Japanese tend to see the lupinus, which is not ingenious to Japan, as a kind of "downside up wisteria".

Lupins or lupines (North America) are the members of the genus Lupinus in the legume family (Fabaceae).
The genus comprises between 200 and 600 species, with major centers of diversity in South America and western North America, in the Mediterranean region and Africa.

Bluebonnet lupins, notably the Texas Bluebonnet (Lupinus texensis) are the state flower of Texas, USA.

The Texas bluebonnet is the state flower of Texas. This year, it only made a short appearance, due to the drought.

Dear Gabi,
Lovely colours in your lupins and a great haiku to capture the sense of joy that this brings to you especially as they are associated with your home country.
