Wisteria In Bloom
This year seems to be a banner year in our area for this uniquely colored flower. It’s a short-lived season, but right now, the Wisteria are in bloom.
The Wisteria Aren’t Always In Bloom
The house in the feature photo above is actually named “Wisteria Porch.” And we often pass this house on our longer bicycle rides.
Thaddeus and I have both remarked that we haven’t seen wisteria blooming for the last year or two.
When we stopped to speak with the homeowners of Wisteria Porch, they confirmed that this is the first bloom in three years! I had no idea wisteria could be so finicky.
But when they bloom, it’s is truly a bounty of heavy, rich purplish flowers.
There are other spots along our bike ride with tons of cascading flowers this year. The wisteria seem to be making up for missed COVID years like many of us.
Regained a little bit of progress on the Rios Slip Stitch afghan and it is really turning out exceptionally well (I think).
I’ve finished 7 of the 10 wide stripes and I have less than three stripes to go. This yarn makes a soft, warm and cozy fabric that will be a perfect afghan.
