Lupines, their pods and seeds. First, the profusion of color, spikes of flowers rising above and prevailing over the leaves; then the variety in different clumps, rose? purple, blue, and white; then the handsome palmate leaf, made to hold dews.

A book of the seasons, each page of which should be written out-of-doors, or in its own locality wherever it may be.
