Lupines grow wild along many New Hampshire road sides and Sugar Hill is ground zero for the spring explosion of these spiky blue, purple, pink and white flowers. The area hosts a festival each year featuring the peak bloom of these beautiful wildflowers in fields framed by New England architecture and the Franconia Ridge.
Weeks ago my friend Jeff Sinon and I had planned a photography outing for this past Saturday. As is typical we were still finalizing the plan as we got in the car. Sugar Hill kept coming back into the conversation and by mid afternoon we were waist deep in Lupine fields.
