  LupineSeeds.jpg - Lupine Seeds: 1. Day 1, Seeds, some (brown) were already dry, the pod bursting open and some (greenish) were still moist in a closed pod. 2. Pods bursting open. 3. Small larva found in one lupine pod. Seeds were gone. 4. Day 2, seeds mostly dry. I scattered them today at the site of a 2010 pile burn, raked them in a bit, and covered them with oak leaf mulch. I did this last year and 12 seedlings came up. So I am hopeful. Photos taken by Marilyn Goldhaber, on Stonewall, Oakland, CA on May 24-25, 2011.
