In case you haven't figured it out yet, I'll let you in on a little secret about me. I love spring. Not just like it, but LOVE it! The flowers almost overwhelm me with their beautiousness (that's a word, you know. I use it all the time, so that makes it a word.).

Two of my very favorites are wisteria...

and lilacs....and they're both purple!

Wisteria gone mad! This lovely tangle hangs above one of our streets. You can't see it in this photo, but the vine trails down a 30' long rock wall on the left. The picture really doesn't do the vine justice - it is magnificent in person!
And here's my little old wisteria. I had wanted to train it to grow along our fence, but that was a most futile effort. All I got were little runners that never amounted to much. Guess I have a vine that thinks it's a bush!

Hop on over to my flickr and you can see many more incredible purple beauties!




  1. Pretty! - I love the close up of the lilac.

  2. I always think of William Faulkner when I see wisteria...beautiful shots Miss Annie:)

  3. Well - if you say beautiousness is a word, than that is good enough for me. Especially when you show them in all their beautiousness. ;)
    Cheers, Klaus

  4. I wonder if I could grow some beautiousness wisteria here. Must check that out...

  5. Wonderful! Purple is my favorite flower color! All the purple flowers are wonderful and full of beautiousness. You've got us all using it, so it's definitely a word :-)

  6. I love the smell of lilacs. Ours are done blooming now, but they sure make the wait worth it!

  7. Beautiful flowers and vines. I love the same ones as well.

  8. I'm with you! Spring is my favorite time of the year. Your flowers are GORGEOUS!

  9. I picked some Lilas yesterday and even though they are starting to look a little tired, they still smell so wonderful.... Your photos are beautiful!! I love purples!

  10. Your flowers are very beautiful. I made my first discovery of wisteria this year in Virginia. What an amazing plant. Your photos are gorgeous.

  11. burple is a favorite color of mine too ...

    sometimes those vines take forever to 'get it' and trail properly ... dont give up!
