Memorable Wisteria-

I'm posting this because I had just taken a certain photo before I read this from Cindy's Fractured Fairy Tale ...pertaining to Wisteria she wrote, 


I just walk right out into the parking lot at work
 and go straight to the fence where it is dripping in purple and violet 
and i bury my face in the soft scented flowers....

doesn't everyone do that?


If you've not read her blog, please hop over and visit her. She is a beautiful blogger, with a beautiful home and a wonderful talent for creating beautiful paintings. So talented-- not to mention funny! I love her sense of humor. Tell her Hi! and that I sent you.  
(Sorry, you don't win anything for doing so; 
just the opportunity to meet a nice lady is all the prize you get!) 

We have two Wisteria planted in our yard; they are Memorial plantings the one seen in the background sort of left of center is for my Mother in love, the one front and center pictured here is for my Mom.  
The front Wisteria got a brutal pruning mid to late winter. (no names)
This is the display I’m getting this year.  It sort of looks naked, I know! 100_0060
There are a few flowers. Enough so that She can enjoy doing this…100_9939
And I can laugh and laugh at her. Just before she stuffed her face into this bloom…she said, ‘Take my picture Oma, pleEEEase.’ and then buried her face right in there. (I guess everyone does do that!) 
Making it blog worthy and MEMORABLE!


It must be the weather…because this is last years (2011) Wisteria LOADED with flowers…and the tree behind it is almost bare of leaves. Looking at this years—it is the opposite. You can see that the date is about the same,too.  
Around the Yard 3-18 thru 3-22-2011 004There is just no telling…

we have never been able to make the wisteria blooming on our trips South, we always go to late or too early! I am so jealous!! I do have a wisteria vine piece that I use as a curtain rod though, that is as good as it gets. I have been blessed with big wiffs of magnolias and camellias and ocean and fish markets. mmmmmm

bad you can't keep the blooms
all year long...
Very nice indeed

For me, it's the lilacs that I want to bury my head in when I head out the door. Love wisteria, too, though. Terrific pictures! Thanks for sharing.

I don't know how anyone could keep themselves from burying their noses in those blossoms--how beautiful! I'm sure it smells wonderful. :)

Kristina said...

I planted a lilac a few years ago. We are anxiously waiting for it to bloom for the first time.

I love Wisteria. Beautiful. We don't have any at our house, but I want some. My grandmother had it, but never liked it. It can take over and spread.

Beautiful tree and yes, there is nothing like burying your nose in them. I am patiently waiting for my Hydrangea to take off like it usually does, but it is moving slowly. I agree, the weather is too blame. It's so darn nice out the plants don't want to work! Ann
