During yesterday’s blizzard, I was thinking about Iceland. Or perhaps, any little windswept island — what it would be like to live there when the winds are howling like they were yesterday.
One thought led to another, and I was reminiscing my trip to Sweden last year. Had my usual stop-over in Iceland. As soon as the aircraft began to descend, I gazed eagerly out the little window, as I wanted to take in as much as I possibly could of the Icelandic scenery that I love.
When the airfield came into sight, I was stunned — it was blueish purple!!! At first I didn’t get it … I couldn’t make out what it was, or what they’d done to it, but when we were just about to touch down, I saw it! The whole field was totally covered by lupines!!! It was amazing and I wish I’d been able to take that picture, but now it only resides in my memory.
In fact, I think last year must have been the year of the Lupines! Never have I’ve seen them blooming that intensely or being that numerous!
