Wisteria Lanes

Ever since the weather turned warmer, almost every road I travel could be named "Wisteria Lane." I don't think I have ever seen so much wisteria blooming.

It could be because we had more rain than usual, but the roadsides are now colored lilac and when you drive past patch of wisteria you get a fragrant whiff of the blossoms -- very sweet.

There are a few patches in the sun, but most of the wisteria I see is climbing in shady spots.

It spreads up into the tallest trees. I think there is more of it than I have ever seen.

I know in a few days it will be all gone. The petals will fall and all that is left will be the leaves on the vines. Until then I will enjoy the sweet wisteria fragrance.


  1. ooooooh - I love these photos! We were just noticing how pretty the Wisteria is this year - beautiful! Thanks for sharing, Joanie

  2. I agree with you: there seems to be more of it than ever! (This should be a scratch-n-sniff blog post!)
