A few days ago, Jana did a drawing of wisteria, and inspired me to do one of my own. The glycine (for some reason, in our family we always use the French word for wisteria, even though we generally speak English to one another) has been our favorite sign of Spring since we moved to this area. It’s out now, in all its purple glory, and it smells absolutely divine. We had a few warm nights earlier this week and slept with the window open – what a delight to have that perfume in our room! On the other hand, we know it won’t last long. The leaves are already coming in, and one day soon we’ll look and it will be mostly green leaves, with just the occasional purple flower. So here’s yet another attempt of mine to capture the wisteria in my yard – I try every year and am always disappointed by my efforts.
Is there a wisteria near you?
