Yes val thats normal with lupins it's all over very soon, but a great show while it last. You could as punkdoc say's collect the seed pods when ready and plant up for free plants next year, the one you have will be back spring next year for an early summer flower. If you chopped the dead heads of sooner, without the plant wasting energy on seed making, you might of got a second flush of smaller flowers. I find the second flush is always much smaller.

If there was no blossom it's wont fruit as the blossom goes on to form the fruit. if it's not happened by now it wont untill next year. Did you give any fertilizer, i find Q4 a few times year works well for me.
