Wisteria in Black and White

June 2, 2017

This wisteria plant blooms every year in front of the Oberlin Public Library. This April 30 was the first time I caught it in flower.

    • Thank you, Ken. If I can think of how to treat it differently, maybe I’ll catch it again another year.

  2. I like that you showed us the context. Wisterias are so beautiful. When I managed the grounds on an estate north of NYC, there were wisteria vines on a guest cottage that didn’t bloom. I read up and found out that it can be a mysterious process, sometimes taking years, and I remember reading that some people swear by banging the base of the vine hard with a bat. Knocking some sense into it, I guess, to get the juices flowing. Bet your husband will know more.
    I like the two versions, too.

  3. Thanks, Lynn. The only thing I’ve heard David say about why the wisteria on the property of the house we just sold bloomed so sporadically was that the winter was or wasn’t too severe. I never heard about banging the base with a bat; we never tried it.

  4. What a beautiful Wisteria – well captured Linda. I really like that B&W interpretation too.

  5. Thanks, Andy. I hope I know what you mean, and I do if you know what I mean. 🙂
