I am celebrating Day 2 of Cathy at Words and Herbs’ annual Week of Flowers meme with our wisteria at its peak, on what looks like a cloudless day in the middle of May.
Reblogged this on Anita Dawes and Jaye Marie.
I do love a good wisteria, and this is one of the best I’ve seen, Cathy…
Aw thanks 😊
Lovely, I enjoy seeing this on houses.
I had wisteria envy earlier this year when I saw your beautiful blooms Cathy and I’ve got it all over again! If mine ends up looking half as good I shall be very happy indeed, yours is a real stunner.
Oh I hope yours does you proud in future, Arwen – at least the wood pigeons did not destroy the buds this year…every time I saw them out there I moved them on with a very stern warning!!
Wood pigeons are such stupid birds aren’t they and such a nuisance – I send the Under-Gardener out there to bark at them!
They seem to have moved elsewhere for the winter here, although they have paid a return visit to the cable that crosses the front of our house, to the detriment of our vehicles… (I usually keep the windscreen of mine covered in summer to stop the mess on the windscreen)
Your wisteria is so lovely – excellent pruning of course!
Haha – thanks! 😁 I try to winter prune around Christmas Eve or so, so that’s rapidly approaching…🙄
Gorgeous. The Wisteria I inherited with the garden, which continues to spread despite all my efforts to eliminate it, has never bothered to redeem itself by blooming.
Gosh, what a shame to have a wisteria that doesn’t flower… 🙄 Is it known to tolerate your climate?
Yes, actually. It may not get enough water and/or sun. The local botanic garden (5 miles away) has a large specimen that flowers annually.
Heavenly – and the blue sky too! 😃
Oh, that is a beautiful display of Wisteria! I love it! 🙂
