A village in Wisteria

I walked awhile through a village in Wisteria..

Wisteria vine,
climbs and captures,
pieces of pastel purple sky,

there a village drenched,
in Heavenly tranquility,
and fragrance,
a promise of Summer,
just around the corner.

A kiss before the entrance door.

Waiting at the letterbox.

Leaning next to the barn.

Opening the gate.

Embracing the water well.

The Wisteria vine seems well suited to the April climate, and clearly a favourite plant, as she decorates buildings and villages, in pastel purple, throughout south-west France. I quite like her too!

  1. I was in Entre Deux Mers last week and thought all the wisteria were lovely, they seem to flower very easily in the climate. In Castelmoron D’Albret there were many, and a beautiful, very old R. Banksia Lutea in soft yellow


    1. Hi, you were one kilometre from my home, and yes the wisteria was stunningly beautiful. I should have taken my camera there but I wanted to feature another village.


  2. Wisteria is one of my favourite blooms and has a wistful connotation for me too since we had it all over the back of our house when I was growing up and my father often popped up at my window to prune it back when I was sitting reading or daydreaming and we would chat …. your poetry, your prose and your photos are a delight.

    As an aside, I have been absent for several weeks whilst I effected a rather major move. Now that I am settled it is a pleasure to be able to dip back into the blog-pool and over time I will catch up with all I have missed. And of course, write some of my own too, thought that may be construed as a threat rather than a delight 😉

    1. Hello, it’s taken me a long time to reply. I too have moved, from one country to another. My blog will remain, but there will be changes, as yet I’m not sure of. Thanks for your lovely memories and comment.

      1. I moved from France to the USA (New England) … be kind to you. Expect nothing. I did neither of those things and literally broke down. I wish you peace and content and settling and whatever you do with your blog is a side-issue. Just do you. It is beautiful. I send you strength and support and love x

      2. Thanks Osyth for your support and love, you’re so generous. I hear you and will be kind to myself. I’m near my family again so it is a happier situation than maybe yours. I’ll be wishing that you find your niche and your rhythm of life, bringing contentment to you too. x


  3. I also love the wisteria vine (locally known as bloureën – blue rain). They grow abundantly in our drier regions and are in flower during September to mid-October. Thank you for visiting my blog 😊

  4. I found your comment on crushedcarmel and read her comment about your beautiful photos, so here I am to see for myself. I wrote a book some time ago (not yet published as it is full color) and needed a photo of wisteria for one chapter. I had no idea where to find it, or whether it even grew in this area (Southwestern Ontario, Canada). One day I was driving past my apartment building to take a friend home and happened to glance at the fence between the townhouse complex next to us and the house beside it. I said to my friend, “I think that’s wisteria!” Of course until I saw it up close I didn’t know for sure. I went home, parked my car and walked over to the fence. Sure enough, it was wisteria. A darker purple that in your photos. I had my camera and took a few photos and was happy as a lark. I will come back to look around your blog when I have a little more time. Thank you for the pleasant tour.

  5. Thanks for your compliment and comment. I’ve neglected my blog as I’ve moved away from France and am now living in Wales, UK. There will be a change to my blog, but I’m unsure of how at the moment.
