Happy Tuesday! Thought I would share with you the one thing that is making me most happy right now…. my Wisteria.
Oh, how I love you! It has never given me so much love than lately. The love it gives me reminds me of having a pure crush on a boy who never gives you a second glance… the agony, the agony.. it’s painful… then one day he starts flashing those smiles your way and giving you high fives! Oh yeh, me and the Wisteria are going steady! The thrill of it all!
I bought this wisteria as a 40cm stick two and a half years ago after I had built a trellis out the front
I am a chicken before the egg kinda girl. The lady at the nursery reassurged me that it would fully bloom within three years, three years, shit, that’s a long time, I can’t plan what I’m doing next week, let alone in three years!…will I still be living at the same house? really, that’s a long time! When I asked her if I needed another one to plant on the other side of my trellis to speed things up a bit she said no, this will do the trick. You just have to wait.
So after many a month of looking at my stick, the stick grew wood to make it a larger stick. Over the next two years the larger stick then slowly twisted itself around the trellis in it’s bare woody fashion….
unpatiently I waited… secretly hoping that I had picked up a ‘fast growing Wisteria’.. alas, no.
So, after all this time here we are. In love with the heady fragrant Wisteria… and still thinking I should of bought that second one to go on the other side! Imagine the beauty!
