Bountiful Blooms - Wisteria Part 2

Ivy and Elephants
Thank you Patti and Paula for featuring the wisteria this week!! I am so flattered!
Make sure to visit Patti and Paula's over at Ivy and Elephants.
These two classy ladies have the coolest collections, and they always share a bit of history about their finds. I learn something every time I visit their blog!! 
Thank you again ladies!!!

Spring is such a special season.

You gotta savor the early blooms.

 They are so delicate and strong at the same time.

 Our wisteria is in full bloom right now and I am loving every minute of it.

 I have been photographing it over and over.
Like a proud new mom!

In the picture below I think it is apparent that the wisteria loves the arbor my husband built as much as I do. 

 The blossoms will only last a few weeks, a windy day or some high temps and it's bye bye to the blooms. 
But the vines and leaves are another story...

In the summer I usually have to trim the wisteria about 4 or 5 times. It grows like a weed! We hardly even water it anymore. I know that sounds odd but it is 22yrs old this year!! So I guess we are doing something right.

 Thank you for visiting today. I love showing off the wisteria!

  1. I love wisteria! Your photographs are beautiful. We used to have some climbing up a tree in our old house, but none is our TX suburb house :( I have enjoyed seeing it climbing up around the highways though as I've traveled these past few weeks. Thanks for sharing your beautiful pictures :)

    1. Thank you Melanie, It only blooms for a short time but it is so beautiful! Thank you for visiting!

    Good morning Lori!
    Your wisteria is just dreamy! I can imagine setting a pretty table under the wisteria and enjoying a cup of tea and pretty cookies with my friends. Just beautiful.

  6. Wow, I love your wisteria! I always want to buy some but I admit I am terrified about how much pruning it needs and how fast if not maintained it can get crazy....seeing your photo's I may just change my mind.
