Monday, 8 September 2008: Blue Monday

Wisteria at twilight. I know wisteria are really mauve not blue, but their Afrikaans garden name is bloureen, which tranlates blue rain. The photo was taken on Friday evening at my friend, Elisabeth's driveway, at the end of our late afternoon walk.

PS Blue Monday is a blog theme introduced by Smiling Sal. Why don't you join in? I still have to work out the Mr Linky bit!

Wisteria is such a lovely plant with its drooping flowers.

Your wisteria is lovely. When I went to England, I fell in love with all the wisteria hanging from houses and garden gates. I don't see it as often here in New England, but Canada has it in their beautiful gardens too. Have a lovely Monday. Karen

This wisteria is gorgeous!! I planted some this spring and hopefully in a few years mine will look as nice.

Oh, that it pretty. Because of you, I can enjoy spring again this year.

What a treat to see wisteria blooming in August! It's one of my favorite plants, even though the blooms last only a few days. Yours is just breathtaking.

How romantic. Blue rain. I just love that, and it is such an appropriate name, don't you think?
