I love wysteria. I love how that mass of purple flowers hangs down from the thick vine, perfuming the air with its light sweet fragrance. One reason it is so special is because it comes so quickly and ends almost in a week-or so it seems. I’ve gotten a few shots of wysteria growing in Paris but somehow have always missed the season in Provence.
Every time I pass this corner in a little village near us called la Motte d’Aigues I wish I had my camera. Usually it’s just the thick trunk and green leaves but in April it is a show stopper exploding with purple.
Two closeup shots. Can you see the rain drops on the flowers? We’ve been getting a lot of much needed rain here and there is even more on the way. Up in northern France they even got snow which I’m glad didn’t make its way down here.
