Twisting my lupins man

DSC02054My poor lupins, first it was a few collapsing leaves now the flowering stems are writhing. It’s not lupin aphid that much I know. I’m guessing it’s lupin anthracnose which according to the RHS is more likely in wet conditions. If the whole lot collapses it’ll have to come out, bye, bye lupins.

Yesterday in a slight break in the rain, above the burbling of swallows skimming the field, swifts scything the air, the first I’ve seen this year.
