The Wisteria that Ate Rural Street

The First Wisteria Blossoms

The wisteria vine was part of May's garden makeover. It's already at the top of the porch column and started on its horizonal journey. Yesterday I noticed that one slim tendril had snagged the cornermost Tibetan prayer flag by a couple of threads. By this morning, the flag had been captured completely; I couldn't extricate it without cutting either the fabric or the plant. We've unleashed a monster, I fear. But it's fascinating to watch; you can almost literally SEE it growing.
