It's time for Rain's Thursday Art Date, and this week her theme for Colorful June is purple.
In my town there is a group that maintains the snowmobile trails that crisscross town. (In fact you could snowmobile from my town and connect to trails that go all the way in Northern New Hampshire, Northern Maine, Vermont or even Quebec.) At a couple of spots where the trail crosses the state road, there were these gorgeous fields of lupines that I think are on state property. Many are purple, but I'm loving the other shades too. I stopped at one a couple of weeks ago when these flowers were at their peak and snapped a few photos.
