I love lupins. I don't much care that they are considered to be weeds. So are daisies, and they are my favourite flower. Does this say something about me or the classification of flowers?
The name derives from the Latin, 'lupinus' meaning wolf, because the plants have a tendency to ravage the land where they grow. But outbreaks of these voracious lupins can make runs and bike rides around the Wakatipu Basin quite glorious.
They are hardy too and can withstand the wind and showers that buffet them as they sweep through the valley. They stand sentinel along the roadside in a riot of colour.
I love writing, singing, acting and directing. I drink wine and beer and do a bit of sport on the side - mainly triathlon although I love football too. I travel whenever I can and collect new experiences. My favourite colour is green or purple depending on my mood, and yes, I think the two go well together. I try to lead a balanced life but I keep falling off.
