Saw this most amazing vine of wisteria on the fence and gate of one of my favourite houses in the neighbourhood of Fernwood. This variety has the largest and most luscious pendulous racemes I have ever seen. The wisteria was intertwined with lovely pale lavender-coloured lilac and delicate pink clematis. Love.

Beacon Hill Park in Victoria BC: every week brings new colours, ever-changing landscapes to explore. I'm looking forward to some summer picnics this year.
