{This post linked to 
From My Front Porch To Yours}


One of the most wonderful natural smells
Mother Earth could provide.

As the days progress,
the trees are bursting with the beautiful
purple flower.

The air is perfumed with the most amazing scent.

Today, it's a bit windy so it's wafting so wonderfully,
you just can't take a deep enough breath.

All of these photos were shot in our backyard.

These two photos are looking out over
 the hill behind our home.
We are literally in the tree canopies.

The photo above and below show the vines that 
wrapped themselves around the trees, 
sometimes strangling them to death
which is a shame, as these trees are so 
very old. There are some very majestic
Oaks on our lower property, some to
be said that are registered with 
the National Arbor Society.

I hope your Spring has sprung as ours has.

  1. Oh dear, that wisteria is lovely but I hate that it has killed the old trees!
    Hope you have a lovely Spring!

  2. what a juxtaposition of beauty, scent and demise...

  3. Oh to live in a world doused with such beauty. I miss Wisteria...it's not hardy up here, but yours make me dream of the days when I could smell it's beautiful scent.


  4. Your photos are spectacular!! Spring hasn't sprung yet here. We've had an unusually cold winter and much snow into March...even today. What's up with that!?
    Happy to be a new follower,
