Very Happy Wisteria

It has been a very, very long time since I've 
Outdoor Wednesday Party.

But I thought you might enjoy seeing the wisteria.....








 When you walk into this garden you smell something 
similar to Grape Bubble Gum.
It is pleasant and distinct.


If you love Wisteria this is the prime time to see them 
at Longwood Gardens.
We nearly missed them since the day ended up cooler than 
we were expecting and we spent most of our time in the 
Conservatory.
It just seemed impossible to not check out the brick walk 
which then made me think about the wisteria.
I'm soooooo glad I remembered.
It was gorgeous.
Worth the shivers....for sure.























The close ups!







Don't forget to enter my give away for a 12 ounce Apple Pie Soy Candle!!
I'll be choosing a winner on Saturday.
You can enter every day, if you like.

Good Morning Becky Sweetie...
Oh thank you so much for taking me along this morning to the gardens. If I ever get back out that way again this one place you have made me want to visit. It is magical.

I can smell the wonderful fragrance clear out here in Phoenix. The clusters are so beautiful, both in color and design. I love the covered areas where they hang in such big clusters as well.

Loved seeing the smiling faces of the family. Memories in the making. Have a glorious week sweet friend. Thank you so much for sharing this morning. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Oh how I love wisteria! It bloomed in South a couple months ago! I say every year that I am going to plant some but have not! Have a blessed day my friend, HUGS!

Wisteria is getting to be one of my favorite plants because I hardly ever see them around here. I saw some at the Botanic Gardens last week so they do grow in Illinois. Amazing post this week!

What a treat. I don't think I've ever seen a wisteria tree ~ they must not grow in our region. Im glad you remembered too (:
