Photo Gallery: Field of dreams

When I saw this field of lupines I was reminded of the 1982 children’s book “Miss Rumphius,” written and illustrated by Barbara Cooney, that I used to read to my children. It’s about a women who spreads lupine seeds across the land, creating fields and fields of the colorful flowers. How wonderful it would be, I thought, to see a field of lupines, and I often wondered if there really was such a thing. Then, while driving through Hawley recently — there it was: a field of lupines. I stopped to admire what I like to imagine was the work of “The Lupine Lady of Hawley."
