Tulip, Plantain and Wisteria

20 May

We planted deep purple tulips to come up with the white ones. In fact, they came up later but they are fantastic and are surviving the wind and the rain.



Just outside Chacewater Village Hall,where I go for Pilates, there is a wild garden with Plantains in flower. I do love their delicate halo of whiteness.

On my way out of the village, stuck in traffic as usual, I was able to appreciate and photograph this amazingly beautiful Wisteria.

      Isn’t it? We saw more Wisteria on our road trip as we went through the Shenandoah Valley. We found the change in flora up and down the mountains quite fascinating. 🙂

    The only Wisteria I’ve ever seen up close and personal was in Amsterdam. It is so beautiful. 🙂

      It seems very good this year. The strange weather has seemed to suit it. 🙂

    It has been a great year for Tulips. We have really enjoyed the ones in our own garden and those belonging to gardener friends.

      Absolutely, so have we and their colours are so vibrant. Their season seems to have lasted well too. 🙂
