Outdoor Wednesday - Wisteria

Lovely Susan is hosting Outdoor Wednesday again. Please visit our host and the other participants at A Southern Daydreamer.

My post for Outdoor Wednesday is my wisteria that is starting to bloom. I blogged about this ad nauseum last year, and I promise not to do that again this year, but I just had to show you the first flower. It opened Sunday and I stuck my nose in it as soon as I noticed so I could drink in the heady scent. And it. was. wonderful. I wish we had smellavision YouTube so I could share it.

Happy Outdoor Wednesday from here Amongst The Oaks.

And as usual, Mr Linky and I are mortal enemies; he hides all the other participants from me and won't even let me see his face. Coward. So if you want to show me your Outdoor Wednesday, you'll have to leave a comment here. Thanks.

That's one beautiful Wisteria. I'm saying it as if I've known the name of the flower for long :-) I really am terrible at naming flowers. But when it comes to admiring such beauty (like this one), well I sure know how to :-)

Your wisteria is beautiful!

My father-in-law had some growing in his backyard. The smell is just heavenly.

Thanks for sharing.

Hi Laura! I love wisteria vines and yours is beautiful. I used to have one in the last house I owned and every spring I look forward to its blooms.

I had that problem with Mr.Linky but the Mr. Linky people fixed it for me. Try it. Do a google search and send them a message.

I wish I could smell your wisteria too. I wish the wisheria blooms lasted for months and months.

There is no other bloom like it. How I wish I could grow it here in my climate. Folks can grow it in Boise but my elevation is too high. Thanks for letting me enjoy yours.
