The Chinese wisterias are in bloom.
I have loved this spectacular spring-blooming vine since I was a child. This must have been a very popular vine in the 50’s and 60’s because I seem to remember seeing it growing in nearly every neighborhood. We had a next door neighbor who had a large arbor that was covered with wisteria flowers. I remember thinking that this looked so romantic.
I do not have any of this wisteria in my garden since it is just too rampant, but the neighbor across the street has it, so I get to enjoy it without worrying it will take over.
Every morning when I leave to go to work, this view is the first thing I see as I walk out the front door. Such a lovely sight.
