Galactic Lupines

Well, it’s lupine season again at Sugar Hill in New Hampshire which means the beginning of the Lupine Festival.  Last year was my rookie year so I ended up with a load of ticks making my acquaintance after being in the lupine fields.  This year I was equipped with permethrin treated clothes to repel the … More Galactic Lupines
