I am no wisteria sadist.

The performance of the wisteria vine I was scoping out for Wisteria Watch was, um, less than spectacular this year (see sidebar). That's why I was dragging the ol' feet. I watch for it to bloom every year, but this was a lousy year. Maybe it's depressed -- I dunno. Maybe its girl took its dog and ran off to Nashville in its pickup.

But to compensate you patient wisteria waiters, here are some slightly better ones I found 'round town. (No extra charge, because I love you.)

Pretty! And thank you. And you're right -- Wisteria 1.0 is not all that we dreamed of this year.

Hey, It's Ansley said...

Glad you could find substitute wisteria to fill the need.

IT'S ABOUT TIME, that's all.

Aww...purty wisteria.

I love wisteria. The town I lived in near Paris had a lovely old vine, which bloomed beautifully and fragrantly for me the one spring I was there. I that that was really thoughtful.

Oh! Lovely! I should send you a picture of my parents vine. They have a large one that grows up over their porch and is the most beautiful memory of my childhood. Wisteria is my favorite blooming thing ever!!!!

I am glad your back to blogging! I missed your entry's. I am sorry the wisteria didn't perform up to its standards this year. Maybe next year will be a better year for it. I hope all is well with you.

Does it smell nice? I'm unfamiliar with wisteria.

So, Marie. I think my blogger id is working now. Maybe I'll come back to the modern age.

Ok, that first picture with the google eye joke glasses didn't work out. You can't even see them. How embarrassing. Just looks like I'm posing. Changing id photos. And also, will stop wasting your blog comment space now too.

Yes, wisteria smells lovely. Not a loud smell. There was lots of it around when I visited you in DC years ago.

Oh, and welcome back to the modern age, Sharon o' my heart! I like the googley glasses shot, but I understand that it doesn't work if folks can't see that those are googley glasses rather than bulging eyeballs. The picture you settled on -- what landscape is it?
