A Photo a Week Challenge: Nostalgia


My wisteria, it’s finally come to life with blooms! And in my garden!

My school was tucked in a neighborhood of wealth and mansions. In front of one of the homes was a heavy duty trellis that housed a wisteria vine. Parts of it was six to eight inches around. It was a piece of art. It had some age to it and the blooms no longer came. But it had claimed that trellis as it’s own.

The owner clearly held it in some regard because there was a plaque identifying it as a wisteria vine. I have been facinated by it ever since. So I planted my own a few years ago, and it still lives !

Butter Yellow

I bought these a few weeks ago, they are still in bloom at a bright spot near the window. We are up to week three, with a diet of indirect sunlight and three ice cubes once a week – we seem to still be keeping company. Orchids have a mind of their own. Mostly, I’m just along for the ride.
