Wild About Wisteria

I love wisteria! Pictures don't do it justice.

I love how it smells. I love the color, that pale lavender but if you look up close there are darker shades of purple on the petals. I love how it sounds... positively humming with bees. I love how it's a crazy-wild sort of plant, with branches reaching everywhere, climbing all over everything, screaming, "Look at me! I'm wisteria, beeyatches!"

I grew up with a wild wisteria in my backyard and I got married under a tamer wisteria arbor at Cheekwood.

I think if I could be any flowering plant it would be a wisteria.
