Wordless Wednesday – Golden Wisteria

In the slightest bit of autumn sunlight our beloved wisteria, which scrambles over the pergola on the patio, is dazzling.

A Midas touch has turned its leaves to glowing gold.


And even on rainy, gloomy days the wisteria illuminates the garden with its golden, sheltering canopy.

Gradually, its twisted, embracing branches are being revealed.

Meanwhile, I find myself repeatedly at the kitchen window, gazing at its reflected glory. It’s a close run thing as to whether I like it better now than when it’s in full flower. Maybe I just need it more!

    Beautiful golden light! You must have a nice, cool-down period without frost, which ends the show here before they can even turn yellow.

    • Fortunately yes, but strangely we have had a lot more wind/storms early on this year, so things like the dogwood and cherries have lost their leaves without a good display this autumn. Is your view across to the woods not so dramatic this year?

      • Eliza Waters says:

        Despite our ongoing drought, the colours were surprisingly good this year, largely due to the red maples and birch (sugar maples have a leaf spot that ruins them), then on to oaks, poplars and beech.
