Wisteria love

I had a lovely visit with my mum!

Before going off to the hotel where we were staying,

Wisteriacurtain.jpg

She urged me to walk to the neighbouring village

To enjoy the house with the wisteria.

And I’m glad I did!

The front door declared the house was called

The Old Priory.

Look at the windows and the flowers —

I fell in love. Who wouldn’t?

  5. It’s a really beautiful sight when it’s in full bloom and looks particularly fine against old brickwork. Incidentally I saw a wisteria today that was growing free, that is not supported by a wall, and a very strange, low, straggly thing it was!

  7. absolutely beautiful!… I love wisteria, but heard it’s difficult to grow. Where I’ve seen it very happy, (like this photo)… clearly, it is not. 🙂

    Fiona, these photographs are BEYOND stunning! I could actually SMELL them just from looking at your images. I love the smell of wisteria! 🙂

    And yes, who wouldn’t fall in love looking at the windows and flowers, they’re gorgeous.

    There is a home in an area of Philadelphia that I walk by whenever I go to the grocery store that has wisteria hanging over the brick wall behind the house. Last year, I was in HEAVEN as I walked by, stopped, and just inhaled the aroma.

    Thanks so much for sharing the beauty, my friend! Have a fantastic week!

    Glad to hear you had a lovely visit with your mum.

  24. Oh how beautiful. And it evoked memories for me. My parents had a SPECTACULAR wisteria. After my mother died and the house was sold the wisteria was bulldozed and the area laid to concrete.
    Six months later driving past I noticed that the wisteria was staging a come back – and had cracked the concrete.
    I applauded its tenacity.

    It’s too much for my eyes. So much beauty floods them.
    Sure, I compare that wisteria with mine and it makes me envious. Mine is too small. I’ll have to wait for it to get bigger.
    The photos are beautiful.

  78. That is so very spectacular, that i had difficulty reaching the end of the comments, hahaha! The first time is saw wisteria in Lund, Sweden i was already smitten. It was a single plant growing nicely upwards to the 3rd floor wall. It was trimmed to be looking like a tree growing on the wall, almost like that but that is sideways. Then i searched to plant here, but the tropical species is so invasive that i forego the dream of having one.
