My family home in Sydney where I grew up had a huge Wisteria vine growing up a tree in our front garden. This lovely figurine above belongs to my Mother and I remember decorating the Wisteria on the mantle in our living room next to her. It just looked gorgeous and I can still see it today. I think I did the same arrangement in the same vase every year as a young girl. I just copied my Mother's arrangement and I'm sure she did the same one as well each year.
The colours are perfect, the many different tones are perfect, they are perfect. I just want to paint them now. I just wished they stayed out for a little longer than a couple of weeks.
I am sharing this favourite flower of mine today with Susan's Outdoors Wednesday Party. Please pop over to Susan's blog to see more wonderful gardens at http://www.asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com/
Stop press: New Image .....I couldn't resist taking a photograph this morning, so I jumped out of my car in a busy street in Bowral and stole some Wisteria from some one's gorgeous garden just to photograph it in this old green glass comport. Oh dear, I hope no one recognised me!
and I have also joined in on Julia's Hooked on Fridays blog party, you should visit and see this cute little cottage that she is posting today and all the gorgeous other blogger stories.
