My wisteria bloomed spectacularly this year obviously loving the blizzards of winter.
It is fading a bit now, but I thought it was appropriate for a Mother's Day post. It is a member of the pea family, and it does not bloom if fertilized excessively. Wisteria vines climb by twining their stems either clockwise or counter-clockwise round any available support.
Reminds me of how children cling to their mothers, but, if that mother is excessive in her care, the child nevers develops to bloom on his or her own.
So, for all the mothers reading, support your children, but let them bloom on their own!And, Happy Mother's Day!
