I am very proud to announce that my Wisteria has got flowers this year!
I am living here since 2010. The poor Wisteria was cut down to the ground when I moved in. I did not cut it since 2010, and it became a better-grown climber. At the other side of my back fence, where it grows, are big waste bins. Every morning people from the workshops open the lids against the fence breaking off the new growth. There never were any flowers.
This year the climber gave me at least 20 strings of flowers.
It is hardy in USDA plant hardiness zones 5-9, and prefers moist soils. It is considered shade tolerant, but will flower only when exposed to partial or full sun. It will also flower only after passing from juvenile to adult stage, a transition that may take up to 20 years. It can live for over a hundred years.
What kinds of experiences stir emotions for the past within you?
For this challenge, show us what nostalgia means to you — perhaps a moment or scene that makes you feel wistful, happy, sad, or somehow longing for the past. It might be with friends, family, or by yourself — anywhere, any time of year.
Reminds me of spring time in years gone by, farming with goats while I was still a teenager.
Skape met lammers maak my nostalgies. Dit herinner my aan die jare van boerdery met melkbokke.
Springtime makes me nostalgic. All new life, blooms, bees, warmer weather. Just wonderful.
Trompie also enjoys spring more than wet winter.
Trompie geniet ook die warmer weer.

droplets on their fragile leaves.
