out with the old…

… in with the new.   some plants lend themselves to this theme.  the wisteria is one.   the burst seed pods from the previous season are still there on the vine.  and at the same time the new buds are right there beside them.  it will take a while for those new buds to open into blossoms.  for now these two elements are enough.

    What colour is your wisteria John? I don’t have it in my garden but am fond of the blue as we had it in my childhood garden. A friend has a lovely soft pink one growing and she has sprouted some seeds so when they’re a bit hardier one is going to find a place in my garden!

      I think lavender would be the right description. Or blue. I got this one from my mom years ago. I thought it had died out and then about 5 years ago it came back. Good luck with your pink one !

    Your post took me right back to a part of my life as a girl when we first move to Silicon Valley our house had a patio that was covered in Wisteria every summer. I loved reading, and playing there.
    Thank you for posting this. It opened a window to memories long in storage! 🙂
