Wisteria from my window

Your wisteria is way ahead of mine here in the West Country. Your garden looks very beautiful and reminds me of the many happy years I spent in Hampshire.

Thanks, everyone, for your kind remarks about the garden. It was orginally planted in 1960 by an imaginative woman and, after we bought the house in 1979, I've just tried to keep it going, not always easy when we were abroad. It's been a question of trial and quite a bit of error.

All the wisteria hereabouts have suddenly burst into flower over this last week of glorious weather. Sadly I don't have one in my present garden, though, so it's lovely to be able to enjoy your window view vicariously!

Oh that looks lovely. I thought my wisteria was dead but it has now produced a few leaves. Still looks pathetic though.

It takes a lot to kill a wisteria. You could try feeding yours, Sablonneuse.

Mine is just coming out - yours is gorgeous!
(Your name popped into my head this afternoon as I was reading a short story by Mollie Panter Downes in which there's a character called Miss Vereker, and then - pure coincidence - I saw your comment on Nan's lovely "Letters from a hill farm" so had to follow the link here - glad I did!)

My mid-Devon version looks a complete wimp in comparison - but it's early days.

So, so beautiful. Last year when I did a blog entry on locust blossoms, I believe someone compared them to the aroma of wisteria. Books always note wisteria though. :<)
Thank you so much for coming by my blog and for leaving such nice comments. A few months ago, I actually had the Transita Authors' Blog on my list because I had just bought A Proper Family Christmas by Jane Gordon-Cumming (on the recommendation of Simon (Stuck in a Book blog). I wanted to read it at Christmastime, and didn't get to finish, so I removed the Transita blog until next Christmas when I read the book. Well, now that I've 'met' you, I'll add it again, as well as yours, and I'll try and get hold of your books. Whew, that was long-winded, wasn't it? :<)

Thanks for visiting, Nan and all. It's so encouraging for a new blogger - and hit and miss gardener. The shrubs are particularly good this year. Must be all that rain followed by the heatwave.
