Winding Wysteria

Purple wysteria winds its way around the brick post and gate
 at the Riverside Park entrance. 

The park is adjacent to Valley Creek Park (commonly called Bloch Park)
 and will soon be the site of the Battle of Selma school tours and re-enactment.

I adore wisteria. It is sososo Southern and sososo pretty. That old vintage iron g=fencing really does fit perfectly. genie

Very beautiful shot, I really love it!

I was hoping it wasn't true about the FCC, too, but sadly & very disgustingly, it is. The word about it needs to be spread & fast, too, because that page will only be open until the end of April, so would you consider posting it on your blog? There's enough being shown on tv, now, as it is... they need to show less, not more!
Thank you so very much.

Oh my one of my most favorite flowers which I rarely ever see here in yards let alone even at our garden centers.

Barbara Farr said...

I can smell it way across the state. Nice shot.

A beautiful vine that is rarely seen here. It has such an air of romance to it.

Wisteria make me grind my teeth. My next door neighbor has a vine on an arbor next to the property line, and it is SO invasive. It keeps sending shoots into some of my beds and it is nearly impossible to eradicate. Grrr.

Is this this week? We've had freezing rain and I'm glad to see spring somewhere!
Cheers from Cottage Country!

Jack, you are right about it being invasive. I have a vine in the backyard that sends shoots everywhere too. I try to keep it tamed as best I can!

RamblingRound said...

Jennifer, yes, this is this week!

Carletta said...

I like the delicate wisteria wrapping around the hard textures of the brick and iron.

Kate said...

It is beautiful but so invasive. I would never plant it because of that. We have had problems with it for years. Just goes to show that being beautiful isn't everything!!

I took a break this past week and didn't do any posting, so I missed FF. This photo is amazingly beautiful! I love wisteria!
