Wonderful Wisteria

 
 
As promised, that wonderful Wisteria at Exbury Gardens.
 
 
We are off to London for a couple of days. Sir Neville Marriner is celebrating his 90th birthday. He is conducting the Academy of St.Martin in the Fields, at St. Martin in the Fields tonight, and we have two tickets to this rather special moment.
 
 
I hope you like the Wisteria.

    1. Good morning Lorraine,
      Isn't it something? And the scent was quite heady. It's the morning after the concert, and it was spectacular. Just having a cuppa before breakfast.

  2. A little understatement on your part about sir Neville Marriner. Enjoy the concert.

    1. Hi Red,
      I did understate the occasion I suppose. It was something rare that we won't forget.

    1. Hello Doc,
      Due to bad timing, we have only seen it in it's pruned state, or just before or after it's flowered. Like you, we love them.

  4. Great wisteria! I hope you enjoy the concert. I would like to be there.
    The Montreal Botanical Garden has a very old wisteria but bonsai! It is also wonderful to see it covered with blooms but the whole thing 3 foot tall by 4 foot wide if I remember well.

    1. Hi Alain,
      I have never heard of a Wisteria being kept as a bonsai before, how fascinating. Can you tell me if the flowers are smaller as a result? The concert was sublime.

    1. Hello Sherlock,
      I'm glad you like the Wisteria, it's quite unusual in it's immensity, and rather delightful to sit under. The concert was quite emotional, and apart from speaking to Sir Neville himself, we even met a couple from the states who were almost floating in the air with excitement.
