I took this with my Polaroid and scanned it with the first color scanner I had. Using images in this way was brand new and exciting. It was also exciting that anything was growing in the front yard besides weeds, because when we rented the house (which we later bought), the landscaping had consisted of rocks and gravel heavily sprayed with herbicide. There were a few flowers, but we wanted more. We didn't realize it was going to take years of growing weeds to get the soil in condition for even the hardiest of flowers. Any flowers at all were a gigantic coup, and were much cherished. And lupine is wonderful.
