Hi Cynthia,
Your wisteria is glorious....one of my favourites. It is magnificent. You must be really pleased that it is rewarding you with so many flowers.
So sorry that I haven't been around lately....I'm having terrible computer trouble AND Blogger trouble AND Picasa trouble !!!! I hope that I will be back on track soon.
Hope that you are well and enjoying your beautiful weather. XXXX

Oh Cynthia, job well done my friend! I'm afraid I don't exactly have much of a green thumb :)
We are also enjoying our weather and extra light right now.

Beautiful! A long time coming but well worth your patience and efforts. I want to plant climbing roses and have been wondering how long it take for them to get going.

Oh my....your vines are incredible! I have two one year old vines and they are WAY far behind. I hope the freeze didn't kill the buds (is that possible?). Hope you are well! xo Penny

BEAUTIFUL!!! I'm such a dud with plants, and you blow me away with your skill and patience. This time of year is amazing~

Oh Cynthia your wisteria is BEAUTIFUL! What a wonderful place to enjoy your morning coffee or just sit and relax. You did a fantastic job of pruning and training the vines...you could go into business! We used to have wisteria growing on the pergola at the Victorian house but we had a late freeze the spring we moved to the country and never got to see it in bloom. Oh well...I'll enjoy your wisteria and you can enjoy our Lilacs that is if we don't get a late freeze this year. Enjoy your hard work and have a wonderful Tuesday.
Maura :)

I have Wisteria envy. It used to grow all along our backyard fence until our crazy neighbor decided it was "his" fence and cut it all down. It broke my heart.

Your yard is absolutely gorgeous. Enjoy!
