A Star is Born!

A Star is Born! (Wisteria sinensis (Chinese wisteria))

This is probably the worst photo I have ever taken and hardly worthy to appear on this site but I am soooo excited. This was taken through my (mucky, courtesy of Jack & Arnie) study window at a poor angle, from a distance.

In true Rolf Harris style: "Can you guess what it is yet?"

I have browsed, longingly, members' photos of walls, heaving with this beautiful plant, dripping with flowers. Now my little Wisteria, that I bought from B & Q last year, has favoured me with a promise of more to come!

I am thrilled skinny If only it were that easy!

They grow jolly fast so it will soon be bigger. My very old wisteria is covered in buds too. Only a few more days. Pretty early this year thanks to the sudden onset of Summer here.

I am not lucky with Wisterias really, the first one I planted died, so I tried again about 2 years ago but even if it still alive it's not doing very well, maybe it doesn't like the position - I am afraid that I cannot have wonderful lilac grapes of wisteria flowers hanging around the front window.
