Under the Wisteria Arbor


You'll have to imagine the buzzing of the bees (significant) and the fragrance (heavenly).

Oh, yummy! There's nothing like the elegant draping of wisteria! Mmmmmmmmm.

My Mom and Dad had wisteria in the front yard when we were growing up. The sound of bees and the gorgeous fragrance, yes, that is exactly what I remember. That , and the feeling of being at home!

How wonderful. You are definitely getting a head start on spring... we barely have any daffodils peaking out. Thanks for sharing so I can enjoy vicariously!

"I've never experienced wisteria", she said wistfully.

That's beautiful! Wisteria is rare where I live and not too many even know what it is. There used to be a perfume years ago--Laura Ashley or Crabtree and Evelyn---that smelled so like the real thing. I always think of it, too, when I read Jan Karon:).

Beautiful!

I agree, nothing sweeter than the fragrance, but has it overtaken your yard? Ours has sprouted up in several places, even from front yard to back. We're always pulling them up to keep them from taking over other areas.

I adore wisteria. It's all around here, but the wisteria that's been on my arbor for years, just won't grow. :^)

I was in N.C. today at the Festival of Flowers at Biltmore and we smelled and saw so much Wisteria and tulips. We left on an enchanted floral high!

Saw some Wisteria in Oklahoma today and exclaimed to my sister, "hey look the wisteria's in bloom!"

If I could be any flowering plant,
Wisteria it would be.

I just transplanted a wisteria, or as my husband likes to call it, hysteria. I hope it survives to go on and bloom like yours. It's beautiful.

The thought of the smell of wisteria (because I am not actually sure I have ever really smelled it!) reminds me of Cynthia in the Jan Karon books :). Sounds like lovely place to sit and enjoy a spring afternoon!

Oh how I adore wisteria!!! Our season is no where's near ready for it to bloom yet so thank you for sharing yours!! :)

Oh, I love wisteria! It's *the* thing I look for first every spring. I have yet to convince my husband to plant any in the yard, though. He's convinced it will take it over!
