Spring and wisteria

Part of me loves spring (longer days! birds chirping! trees blooming!), and part of me despises it because it’s just a big tease with it’s wind and sun and non-summerness. But I always adore our blooming wisteria.

The peak of flowers a few weeks ago:

Growing like crazy now (both the baby and the wisteria):

The pretty detritus:

We’re getting the backyard, and house for that matter, in shape for summer. I guess spring is good for something.

I’ll report back on that soon. Have a fine weekend, all!

    Gorgeous! I love your photos – they always have the best light. Is that due to the California sun or a camera setting?

    Lovely! And love the word ‘detritus’ :).

    I love it when the wisteria pops out – always such a welcome spring surprise!

    Love wisteria. My grandparents had a huge arch of wisteria growing up that we built forts in :)

    What a beautifully wild backyard you have!

    beautiful! (yard & boy) say, are those some artichoke fronds I see peeking in from the sides? if so, lucky you. I seemed to have killed my last plant this w/e :( apparently, they don’t like to be moved… can’t wait to see what’s in store for your garden!

    Yes well, I agree there is something slightly teasing about Spring. But after all, it is the PROMISE of Summer that counts! :-) We too are getting our garden in order; yours looks all magical and overgrown- you must post after pictures too when you’re all grazing! Here come the barbeques…F x
