Lupins

Lots of people really like these purple flowers named Lupins. They are actually an invasive species. I like the way the houses and water are out of focus as well as the first purple flower to the right.  It gives you an idea of the depth of the view.

Although invasive it does have some good qualities besides it beauty as Wikipedia points out: Lupins make good companion plants for crops that need significant amounts of nitrogen in their soil and can be intercropped properly, like cucumbers, squash, broccoli, and spinach. Lupins contain significant amounts of certain secondary compounds like isoflavones and toxic alkaloids, e.g. lupinine and sparteine.
