this is the time of year wisteria is in it's full glory...and i love it! these beautiful blooms are from a neglected neighborhood american wisteria vine that is rambling up a metal telephone pole support. they can get rather large and need sturdy support: the largest wisteria in the world measures over an acre(!) and weighs over 250 tons (how do they know that?), so you better have sharp shears if you want one! i love the lavender-to-blue color.
