I have a few pictures of my grandmother's wisteria that has started blooming this past week. I had a little pot with five seeds I had planted from my mother's wisteria. One of the seeds has grown so much since it was planted last month. As of yesterday I had four of the five seeds breaking through the ground and reaching for the sun light. Our plans are to place each one in it's own pot and let it start growing. Training it a little along the way. Next year, they will find their own little home along the pond climbing trees and eventually hanging over the water just a little.
This is my biggest wisteria from the planted seeds! I can not believe it has grown so much. Hopefully this next little cold front will not bother it. I may bring it inside this after noon just in case.
My grandmother's is trained as a little tree. The blooms look wonderful. The bees are loving it and in the two days since this picture, green leaves have taken over. The purple pops with the foliage breaking through. It has been cloudy and super windy, so I have not had the chance to take a photo of the new foliage.
I know many that hate these pretty little things since they can become invasive. All they need is a little care each year. A light pruning goes a long way. The wisteria above actually needed a little pruning, but this past year has been a long one.
My camera needs to be trashed as well. I spent all day yesterday trying to decide which new camera I want to purchase. Any suggestions on a great camera? I would love one that takes great low light pictures as well.
