Beautiful shots Carletta. I've been noticing them blooming around here. One of my favorite flowers.

srp said...

Wisteria is my absolute favorite.
I am trying to start some American wisteria... Kentucky blue moon variety and am hoping the trellis around our new sunroom will be strong enough to hold it and that it will actually grow... Hoping!

Dimple said...

Lovely! My grandmother had wisteria over her patio, they were beautiful.

Thom said...

OMG I've never seen one of these. I love it. It almost looks like an orchid to me. It's just stunning :)

judi said...

stunning shots. This grows on your patio, right?

Leora said...

Delightful. I don't see wisteria here - such a pretty flower, so well-captured.

The Lly Dilettante said...

Gorgeous. I like how it flows down in soft bunches :D

Frank Williams said...

Two lovely photos, Carletta. My favourite is the top photo; your framing makes it look as though the flowers are seen through a window...

Kitty said...

Absolutely beautiful! I love the first especially.

Digital Flower Pictures said...

Nice shots. You really have to keep handle on Wisteria around here.

Life Ramblings said...

Ebie said...

I love them and I missed the Wisteria festival here last month. Love the details on the first shot.

Carletta: Your Wisteria is alive and beautiful.

Carver said...

Wonderful shots of the wisteria. I took some pictures of wisteria today but my photos didn't turn out well at all. Your shots are perfect.

mirage2g said...

Now, isn't that captivating? Love the color too!

Beautiful Carletta -- our daughter and sil have a beautiful wisteria over a trellis (in Oregon). Spring flowers, can't beat them!

momgen said...

This very pretty dear. Thanks for sharing. happy TF!

Mine is here

Pat said...

Oh, I love wisteria--the fragrance, the color, the way it drapes itself over a trellis or a fence. Beautiful!

Your Wisteria is beautiful, Carletta!

Mine lasted such a very short time...but I enjoyed it every day it was in bloom!

Naturegirl said...

Carletta a beautiful plant..surley captivates me when I stand under a structure with overhanging wisteria!

diane said...

It is so delicate and gracefully pale.

Iowa Gardening Woman said...

Beautiful photos, I have never seen a wisteria in real life.

Rose said...

Carletta, these are wonderful! My wisteria has a lot of buds/bloom pods but it is going to be a while before they bloom.

chubskulit said...

Yay, that's gorgeous!

Thanks for visiting my African Violet entry.

Stunning light and detail.

AL said...

Awww how soft and delicate they look like! And it pastel shade are stunning.

i beati said...

I don't know why but wisteria always remind me of a time gone by- antiques and old houses with brick a brack and arches, and of the ladies who planted them.

Dave said...

how perfectly beautiful !

Rose said...

Every time I see this, I am struck by what a wonderful photo that first one is...feel like I can reach out and touch it.

Misty Dawn said...

Oh my gosh this is beautiful beyond words! That first one took my breath away!

George said...

Both of these photos are beautiful. I like the close-up of the individual florets, but the second photo shows much more of the entire plant.

kaye said...

love it--so delicate :)

sorry about your computer virus. We are battling one too. Mr. J is going to reformat when summer gets here. He is banning my blogging to a seperate drive. He thinks that's where the virus keeps coming from.

kaye said...

. . . and it has really cut down my blog visits too. I'll try to read and then the internet connection goes down. It has been very frustrating.

Pietro said...

Both wonderful pictures, Carletta! I like the shadows through the flowers too!

chasity said...

that first photo of the wisteria is exquisite....
perfection.

ours just started blooming too.

Kerri said...

Very pretty!

Neal said...

Very beautiful Carletta. My mom had one of those when she was alive. They will take over if you don't watch them.

EG Wow said...

I love wisteria. It reminds me of my grandmother. :) I cannot grow it here because it's too cold!

MedaM said...

Wonderful photos of absolutely gorgeous flowers.

Stephany said...

Oh, Carletta, these are fantastic photos - especially the macro! I have to try to find some wisteria for my bare trellis.

Hope your knee is doing better, my friend!

Leedra said...

You captured the wisteria beauty so well.

Tricia @ Bluff Area Daily said...

Beautiful beautiful BEAUTIFUL... especially w/ the frames you have! They're sooo sooo beautiful!!!

Sorry I haven't been visiting (or posting) lately... I've been engrossed in a series of books! LoL!

Adrienne in Ohio said...

Beautiful, Carletta! I just noticed one blooming by the highway on-ramp yesterday. I wonder how it came to grow there.

happily retired gal said...

What lovely views of this delicate lavender plant in bloom! Sorry I've not visited in a while. Looks like you're not posting regularly any more. Hope all's well with you and yours. I thoroughly enjoy last four posts ... the mellow yellow flowers against the beautiful blue skies are delightful ... I don't think I've even SEEN a turkey flaring tail feathers before ... and those beautiful pink blossoms are marvelous too.
Hugs and blessings,

Jientje said...

I love the detail! Such gorgeous Wisteria, too bad I cannot keep it in a pot on my patio. I tried, but it doesn't work!

tinasphotoblog said...

Very beautiful shots and I love the colour! :)

Reader Wil said...

You took great photos! The colour of the wisteria is my favourite colour!
Thanks for your visit.

SquirrelQueen said...

Carolyn Ford said...

Wisteria is beyond beautiful...what a heavenly sight this is. Beautiful captures, Carletta.
