    Nice work as always, Val…so sorry you missed you own blooming…lucky you to holiday in France!!!! Exceptional colors! (are you certain it’s not upsidedown)

  • Hey thank you Sally. If it was the other way up it might look more like a delphnium [now there`s an idea mine is about to flower……..!]

    You have captured the sweet trailing blooms of the wisteria in their glory. Lovely work. Sandy

  • Thanks Sandy. A mature wisteria in full bloom is a sight to see.
