    The wisteria is pretty much at the top of its game. The recent cold weather has allowed the blooms to stay with us a bit longer.
    You could say that I am well-chuffed with the mature display. It has taken several years to get it this far.

    Ha ha ha...Ware, Mine really isn't "wild"--it is doing exactly what I want it to. I have pruned and tied-in for several years through its puberty now, and finally it has decided to become an adult. I need to do a bit more work on the portion above the sitting area, but I am almost there.

    Absolutely breathtakingly beautiful!! How I'd love to have wisteria growing over the arch I have in the garden.

    Gorgeous! My wisteria vine is bringing down my cedar arbor. As soon as the birds nest is empty I will build a new one.

    Our wisteria we just let climb up an ash tree. It has reached the top now.

    Thanks Eileen, Netty and Odif for your nice words. Those Wisteria's can get out of hand if not kept in line, can't they?

    Ta Cayu-- It is comfy and we can sit inside and observe the birds from the low window or sit outside with tea 'n bikkies. We designed the garden house and found a company to build it. We have been very happy with it.

    Yeah, I like it too. I have seen those types of houses with it draped all across the front. It makes me wish that I had a detached house sometimes. We watch "Escape to the Country" each day and that is a common feature to see.

    Hi Sjoerd it does look stunning across houses especially the older ones and Escape to the country is put on here daily just after one :)

    I think the show comes on here around 4 your time. I am not sure, as I have typed in for it to be automatically recorded each day. We are usually not at home when it airs..we be at the lottie, innit.
