They bloom and grow each year, leaving behind seeds for new growth? How poetic for a science blog! However, not what I’ll attempt to convince you of in this post. Instead consider Harry Potter. I know, far-fetched- right? Actually, JK Rowling did her research. It just so happens that Professor Lupin, one of Harry’s teachers at Hogwarts (it’s not the teacher connection either if that’s what you’re thinking) is also a werewolf (sorry if I spoiled it for anyone). Canis lupus is the latin name of the grey wolf. And Lupin flowers have a wolf claw, if you look closely (see picture). So what do Lupins and Trinity School have in common- wolves… There you have it. These were the first things we saw in the garden upon returning from spring break, what a gift! If you get a close up look at these lupins, or any of the others in bloom, check for the wolf claw!
