It’s Springtime: It’s Wistaria Time!

13 Sep

Here in Sydney, Australia, we are in the midst of Springtime glories.

Judging by perfume, colour and form, one of its top contenders in the stakes of delight must surely be Wistaria.

Though its glory  is as short-lived as it is spectacular, its presence is surely one of nature’s special treats.

Not so popular in modern gardens due to its very vigorous growth, it’s still to be found in abundance in some of the older yards, and sometimes it’s seen twining along a front fences: even trained as a standard on a trunk-like support.

The illustrated display is growing in our back garden.
