It’s Wistaria Time

22 Sep

Here in Sydney, the Wistaria is out. Many of the older homes have displays of this adventurous climber, and now and then one sees it growing on a support in the garden of a modern home.

It’s such a pretty flower, but it really comes into its own as a perfumed plant. Unmistakeable!

    I imagine any home that grows these against the walls must look and smell beautifully.

    Thanks for your ‘like’ on my poem. In the Poetry Section I also have a poem called ‘Waiting for the Wistaria’ which you might enjoy.

      Thank you, Aquileana. You are right in that, if we go by the Equinox, Spring has only just begun. But here in Australian we have a convention that says that Spring starts at the beginning of September. It’s a wonderful time of year!
      Best wishes to you, Aquileana 🙂

    I’m not the only creature who really loves wisteria, not just for their wonderful fragrance, but also their incredible masses of purple flowers – bees storm them too. I’ve a photo of my eldest daughter in a beautiful floral dress braving the bees – just to have her photo taken against a backdrop of a mass of wisteria.
