Unofficial Flower Week: Wisteria

It's cold and rainy here today (which is great, we need it), so I thought I would repost some of last week's wisteria images for Unofficial Flower Week.

This wisteria overhangs two-thirds of our covered patio and is one of the things that made me fall in love with the house.  What I didn't know, until this spring, is that it suddenly blooms all at once with a lovely but super-intense smell.  I can't wait for the scent (and my allergies) to calm down a bit so I can sit out there in the evenings and enjoy a glass of wine after G. has gone to bed, dreaming of Monet and the gardens at Giverny.

  1. These are beautiful! How lovely to have them covering your patio like that! I can relate about the allergies though...I always love enjoying the spring blooms, but I always pay for it later! Hopefully the rain will help with some of the extra pollen.
