    I know it’s an invader, but the wisteria is always soooo lovely to see.

    Oh, I agree. I love it. You do have to make a commitment to manage it, though. We have one at my house that was planted by the previous owners. When I went out to garden for the first time after buying the house, I followed an escaping sucker of it around my house (hugging the foundation and making a perfect right angle at the corner). It was heading for the redwood trees at the side of my house. I stopped it. 🙂 And, you know what . . . the birds LOVE wisteria. They nest in it and roost in it in the winter. Of course, I’ve seen rats in it too so you gotta take that with a grain of salt. Mine is under control now, thank goodness.

    That must smell AMAZING! I have always missed the wisteria since I moved back up here.

    Thanks for showing me that lovely sight (sorry tree!).

    Thanks all. It is kinds of beautiful. I don’t know how that tree smells but my own blooming wisteria smells fantastic! My porch is heavenly right now with the soft scent and the buzzing of bees.
