i told you i would revisit wisteria. this time it’s the southern france variety, from the home of my dear friends eliane et françois. when i first wrote about this beautiful member of the sweet-pea family, a few of you mentioned never having smelled it before. rush out. find some. breathe deeply. you will be smitten. in this small town in the l’arrière-pays of southern france, the glycine drapes itself from everything. some blooms get to be over a meter long. as you can see, the result is magical. hope these little photos brighten your morning.

    I remember walking through the island of Capri off the Almalfi coast a number of years ago and seeing all the wisteria draping the buildings and walls! It was beautiful 🙂

    These images are just incredible, I can’t imagine what it would be like to see these every day in the spring *sighs*

    Oh my this is so lovely! I just adore wisteria. Also, one of my dreams is to live in the South of France. I am hoping to visit this summer. I’m saving my pennies:)

    ohhh…it looks so very beautiful. as we await 3 feet of snow, i am warmed by the reminder that sweet, fresh flowers will one day bloom.

    been wishing for wisteria for years–but can’t convince dad. maybe one could grow up the big white pine…right near our bedroom window…mmmmmmmm…
