I have mentioned my appreciation of wisteria blooms before, a plant that I have only admired from afar and have never actually grown. We just never seemed to have the right location for such an aggressive grower. Well, I think one of those spots has been located, two blocks from my home. I don't know how I could have possibly missed it before:
This specimen has to be at least forty feet high, but I suspect it is even taller than that. I am standing at the base, shooting straight up.
This is only part of the vine's trunk (in the foreground):
The winds were quite brisk today, so if the blooms seem a bit out of focus, well, they probably are!
No wonder wisteria can force a roof right off of the building it covers!
Apparently this tree does not mind at all.
