When I was a little girl, we used to have a lilac bush in our backyard. The delicate purple flowers reminded me of grapes hanging in a bunch and I can remember my mom cutting some from time to time, so she could display them on the kitchen table in a big vase. The aroma of lilacs would fill our whole house!
Wisteria reminds me of Lilacs.
WILD ABOUT WISTERIA
I was driving home from PC yesterday when I saw this pretty Wisteria growing up the water tower in front of the historic Mark's House on CR 85. Right now, Wisteria is wildly climbing on everything and as I drove through the countryside, I could see the light purple blossoms vividly against the backdrop of brownish green foliage.
This old house is about 10 miles SE of Montgomery and is home for one of the biggest Arts and Crafts Fairs in our area which is always held on the first Saturday of November.
We find ourselves traveling out of Montgomery on this road often as it's a nice scenic drive to Hwy. 231. The house is not occupied now and is rented out for receptions, parties and other such events, but could imagine living here with this view?
Ahhhh... me too.
Have a great week everybody. It's Spring!!
