Wordless Wednesday – Excitation levels

wisteria

ExcitationIn physics: The addition of a discrete amount of energy to a system resulting in a change from its lowest energy state to one of a higher energy level (excited state). But that’s a description of me, when I sit under our wonderful wisteria …

chilling and being re-energised …

And thankful that last night’s frost had a minimal effect. Phew!

  1. That’s a beautiful wisteria and loaded with flowers. I was given a cutting several years ago and, aside from trailers all over the yard, it hasn’t produced much. We have buds currently but cold and possible snow tonight. Seems to happen every year. I’ll enjoy yours vicariously.

    • I will keep my fingers crossed for you. Over the last couple of years ours has started to produce loads of long offshoots at ground level which I assume to be from the rootstock, so I cut them off relentlessly.

    Fabulous and beautifully trained! It’s a double one isn’t it? Do you have a name for it?

    Beautiful! I am so envious! 😃

    Pure heaven! What a lovely space you have created. ❤

    I once came upon white wisteria twining through the trees on an old Mississippi plantation. I hadn’t seen any white again until quite recently. We have native purple that’s not as florally impressive, but you’ve reminded me that I need to go looking. I suspect it’s too late, now — darned stay-at-home orders!

    • I have a friend in town who has been sharing gorgeous pictures of her white wisteria and I was saying to her that I didn’t remember seeing a white one before. Apparently, she has problems with pigeons sitting on her trellis eating the blossoms. 😦

    How glorious! I am glad the frost didn’t do more damage. The flowers of the doubles never look quite as you’d imagine close up. They have a lovely ruffled effect.

    • Doubles can look too complicated, but I like these and you are right that these manage to look demurely ruffled. I like the bi-tonal variations in the individual flowers too.
