Wistful Wisteria

A Change Is As Good As A Halliday

A stunning 100-year-old wisteria on a house in Dorset is attracting visitors from all over Britain. Alison Halliday is celebrating a bumper crop of the flowers covering her home. With blossoms measuring four feet long, experts think they might be the biggest in the country.

FOOTNOTE: Orlando’s bloom.

Jack and his magic beans couldn't produce a finer specimen! Four foot long blooms! Wow! ~Janine

Mine has just come into bloom, it is white and beautiful, but JP does rather drastically trim it every year, to its detriment I fear.

Oh my goodness - I had to look it up and see for myself. Fairy castle magnificent!

Obviously a lot of manure around! That must be a record surely!

Oh I love wisteria. Everything about it. The smell, the knarly trunks and limbs. The pale colors. I like that one kind screws to the left and the other screws to the right. They are so interesting. So lovely.

I'm easy to please, I just love the word "wisteria" like a warm breeze. ~rick
