~wisteria lane~

We have this amazing wisteria tree in our front yard.
It climbs a 150' fir tree and encases it from top to bottom in purple blooms. I have never seen anything like it anywhere else.
It was hard to get a good shot of it because it is so tall.

It is slowly killing the fir tree.

Every year I wonder if this will be our last time
to see these magnificent purple flowers.
Eventually the fir will have to come down.

But for now, we can look out pretty much any
window in our home and enjoy this beautiful sight!
Wish you could see it in person, the photos just don't do it justice.
Hope you are all having a fabulous day!
I will be back in a few to announce the winner of the Lisa Leonard giveaway!
xoxo

I love wisteria and find myself always amazed with my mother's in her front yard. Unfortunately the blooms do not last long but they are gorgeous! Enjoying your blog :)

I know it's amazing! I have trained mine up a small tree and this year is the first time it bloomed thru the branches. I hope it doesn't kill this tree.
Enjoy your day

So beautiful! I suppose if a tree has to die, that's the way to go.

Death by wisteria... What a lovely way to go. I love wisteria, but it sure can take over everything if you do not keep it tamed.

Awesome!! Over in East Texas where I used to live, you can see sights like that in the woods every Spring. How wonderful to see it right out your window!

Oh how I LOVE wisteria! They are so pretty...

Meg said...

That wisteria is unbelievable! I love show stoppers from the plant world and that sure is one! Hope it lasts a while longer, it will be sad when the tree has to come down. Blessings Meg

Wisteria is my favorite!!! Last year on craigslist I got an arbor with a wisteria on it on $15, it was just a few twigs, but I had hope. The Hubs dug it up for me and brought it home. This year we had 1 little bloom come to life. I was overjoyed it made it! I can only dream it will look half as amazing as yours someday.

Sheree said...

No Wisteria here...sadly I've never been able to grow it. Thanks so much for sharing yours!

your wisteria is beautiful! I have see more this year then in years past....must be a good year for it. Love lisa leonard.....oh to be the winner!

BeeHive said...

Beautiful! Can you take cuttings and start plantings off it elsewhere in your yard so you can still enjoy it when the tree dies?

Momma Rhyne said...

Oh my. I wonder how old it is to have grown that high? I love it!! I am still trying to decide what type of flowering vine to grow. I have a new found love for Jasmine, the smell is amazing!! But I love the way Wisteria flowers look.

I love wisteria! Yours is so beautiful..How lucky to be able to have that in your yard!
Health and happiness,
Angela

that is truly incredible. you must have a photographer (with the right lens & filters) take photos of it before it comes down. you can frame it & put it in your lovely home!

I love Wisteria. We have planted as many as I can get away with around this house. My folks just had to take one down that had been growing along the side of thier house for the last 35 years. It was beautiful and so sad to see it go. One thing about it, Wisteria grow here as well as Kudzu does in the south.

What a gorgeous sight! I have a wisteria vine that grows on my home, but unfortunately it rarely blooms. Thank you for sharing! I hope your tree stays strong.

Leave the tree.....and poison the wisteria. This will not be the last tree to die.
Wisteria has become a full time job at our farm. It will take your entire place. Kill it ASAP
