Right now the flower markets are stocked with yellow lupine. This is an unusual color of lupine where I come from, but in Portugal it´s native. I loved having some at home in this modern ceramic vase I picked up at Noto in Lisbon, and designed by Martim Santa Rita.
The seeds of some varieties of lupine are used as beans here and in many Mediterranean climates. But for now, I just enjoy the florals at home.
