Wisteria Worth Waiting For by Gabrielle  Lees

This is a Wisteria that grows up a 20 metre high tree near my barn, it’s taken over 10 years to flower. I got some seed and planted it over 13 years ago, I wouldn’t recommend getting Wisteria from seed, it’s been a long painful wait and only when I threatened to chop it down, did it flower. You have to laugh, the first year I got two flowers on the whole vine! That was two years ago and now it’s magnificent and everyone that sees it wants to know it’s name!!!! I call it the stolen Nooroo (as I sort of pinched the seed) but I believe it is called The Pride of Nooroo! Well at least it looks like it.

Got the bug!
Am I obsessive?
Camera shutter worn out!
Computer suffering overload!
Did I take another 500 photos today?
Back up falling behind? :(
Can’t decide what to upload?
Yes that’s me!

    Very beautiful, so sorry though, there is too much dark background for Pastels & Whites.

  • Hi Morag, that’s OK, I took this late one afternoon and the black background was the darkness of the shade behind the tree.
