My great grandfather in his garden. Should that be hyphenated? I never know.

The photo was obviously taken in May. I don't have a date for it but I'm guessing 1930s before he retired and moved house. What a lot of lupins he grew; I think this would have been before the Russell lupins were introduced. I'm fascinated by that bust in the left hand corner. Wish I had it!
