Today's Flowers

I posted photos of the false lupines when they were blooming, and someone asked what is the difference between them and true lupines. Well, the false lupines take longer to set seed, and the pods are longer, thinner, and vertical.
 True lupine seed pods are horizontal, shorter, and fatter.
 Here you can see both sorts.

I didn't know there was a difference...interesting! Beautiful images - I love how I can see the seeds through the pods!

I´m not sure I have seen false ones. Anyway, I love the effect the backlight gives to them.
