The wisteria in my garden is just getting ready to bloom.
There is one little petal open in this wisteria photo, but I think the real star of the show are the interesting cloud formations floating around today.
Anywho, the wisteria buds are good because this is about the time I should be chopping it down.
IF I was going to take it out.
There is a giant mound of leaves, huge seed pod parts and branches covering the patio (yes, I’m a lazy slob). But when the pods are popping open and sending out seed shrapnel, it is just not safe to be out there. Every year I think about just taking it out.
But then it flowers and I remember why I love this plant. I know soon the patio will be dripping with delicate purple wisteria flowers and the air will be full of their perfume. Also, it seems perfectly happy with my laid-back attitude about watering (er, not watering).
And so, my dysfunctional relationship with my wisteria continues.
I’ll post the flowers when they open.
