Wandering through the Hedge



"All who wander are not lost." While gardening last summer I noticed an odd vine growing through the cedar hedge that provides some privacy on two sides of our yard. When pulled a little I discovered it was a piece of wisteria. Our former neighbours planted it along their fence, then later re-contoured their yard so it wasn't even visible from their home. I wrote about Pat and Wendy last September in a post featuring dahlias.
 


Last week I noticed the wandering wisteria was ready to bloom, so I arranged it artfully (or not) on the newly stacked woodpile. You can see the blooms hanging in mid-air in the top photo. 

 
I like to think the wisteria came visiting, looking for a little appreciation for blooming so beautifully. Each time I go out to the garden I take a sniff of its heady sweetness. Thank you, Miss Wisteria, for coming through the hedge. Feel free to bring your friends and family along. There's room for more!

  1. Lovely! By next year your woodpile will no longer be visible under a cloud of Wisteria!

  2. I love a free plant popping through the fence and such a bonus that it is a Wisteria. I love their heavy blooms. We have a white one that climbs up by our front door but it is very temperamental on the blooming front! Take care. xx

  4. What a lovely visitor and a nice surprise. We have an empty lot near us and in the early spring it is covered in a purple cloud of wisteria. I always make sure to get down there and take a whiff. I do love that scent.

  7. The wisteria would be a welcome visitor. It looks beautiful with the backdrop of the woodpile, the delicate shadows showing.

  14. MMMM wisteria! A lovely visitor. Heavenly.
    On really hot days I often close the dining room window in the late afternoon as the scent can be too strong.

  16. Such a pretty visitor! Our wisteria will be much later in blooming - but it just extends the pleasure as we get to enjoy everyone else's first!

  21. There is always room for more flowers! Your wandering wisteria is so very pretty, whether water coloured or photographed, and I'm sure, enjoyed the most, in person!

    Today Katie and I saw beautiful wisteria at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville.

  24. Love the wisteria. The other day I took my camera with me to the gym because I spotted a house
    on the way home that had the most beautiful wisteria over their door. A picture was snapped up
    quickly and ready to share next week.

  25. Love your quote! It speaks to me today (thank you). I miss having a wisteria plant...but I did get to spend a little time with my sibling's plant last week:)
    Blessings,
    Aimee
