Wisteria

I visited our local Arboretum last week.

 I will be going back.

I got lucky the day I went. It was sunny when I started out but clouded over till I got there.  I'd rather make images when the light is diffused and soft. 

This was one of my favorite subjects.





I'm linking up with Gemma over at Macro Monday 2 and I Heart Macro.

Stop over for more beautiful images.

Nice images. I, too, like cloudy days best for photography. Luckily, here in Oregon we get lots of these!

Beautiful shots. Wisteria is so pretty when it is all in flower.
Beautiful macro shots. The purple and green goes so well together!

such a gourguos flower. Looks a bit like a cone before flowering.

Hi Felicia, i had a big mistake. I opened your site before going to I Heart Macro, then i commented there about wisteria, haha! I cannot remove it anymore, but actually it is for this wisteria.

I said the first time i saw it in Sweden, i was smitten. Till now i am enamored still with it. How i wish it is not invasive in the tropics.

We have two large wisteria plants on our garden - but it will be a while before they are in flower!

Here in Germany all our wisteria blossoms are already withered... ;-(
So great to enjoy your impressions of that impressive plant!
Regards from Germany, Uwe,

Beautiful shots of the Wisteria, very sharp! I agree that it is difficult to photograph in full sun, I usually wait until twilight or clouds and go around and photograph whatever caught my eye. I had a Wisteria that didn't bloom very long and was a house eater, so I had to get rid of it, but there is a different variety with long blooming gorgeous flowers, sigh.
Beautiful pictures.

Felicia, this is so lovely and looks quite different from the wild wisteria that vines through the trees in early spring, here in NC. I love your blog header also...those country scenes warm my heart along with that old car! Blessings!
