My photos really do not do justice to the glory of the spring garden. The light is soft and lovely, every leaf is sparkly, every flower a little miracle. The apple blossom looks fresh and innocent, as if in the Garden of Eden. Ah, Spring.

This paltry display is the first ever flowering of the wisteria that I planted at least three years ago. I am unreasonably excited by this. It’s Wisteria floribunda ‘Macrobotrys’, also called Japanese wisteria.

I intend to give it a very hard prune after the flowers have finished. Don’t want to be overtaken by unruly wisteria. I have enough unruliness around me.


Just sayin’.
