My Wisteria


This plant has got to be one of Mother Nature's finest creations!
As you know every year I look forward to seeing the blooms, and this year did not disapoint me! Some of the flowers are 14" long, and the smell is so wonderful!!!
These pictures are just a small portion, It is HUGE and goes over along the top of our patio cover, with the flowers hanging down thru the slats. It also goes along our 10' long fence that devides the patio from the pool area. Several years ago, I went up into the mountains collecting fallen tree branches and long sticks to make an arbor to go across the gate opening. I wired the sticks together, and then wired them to the fence. I trained the Wisteria to go over the arbor, so now we have almost a solid wall of these beautiful Flowers!!!! I can't tell you what joy I get
from these awesome purple flowers hanging ever where!

I wish that was in my yard! I've tried so many times to start one and they just go kaput! Enjoy it for me.
