it’s the only wisteria vine in our neighborhood and this is the first time i’ve gotten this close to it. did you know wisteria is scented? it’s just strong enough to slightly startle you with its potency and magic.
at this stage in its bloom it is mostly woody vine with the dripping floral display, flowers in search of a float (or romantic 19th century novelist…la dame aux wisterias, anyone? they are a bit like chandeliers — earrings and light sources.)
my visit was brief, the dogs were anxious to get away from the bumblebees floating around and through the vine. sadly, no one is living in the house it climbs at this time, so it goes mostly unnoticed and perhaps a bit unloved, except for today.
