Quoting Feather3:
I might be wrong, but Lupine's don't have sharp thorns. My best guess is that this is Gorse.


Yep, it's gorse! I didn't think lupines had thorns, but I've actually never seen gorse in bloom, and the individual blossoms looked just like lupines. I'll update the photo. :) Thanks!

Wandering around outdoors is my favorite escape... and I've loved taking pictures ever since I got my first camera out of a box of Kellogg's Corn Flakes.
