Each year around this time the wysteria blooms and permeates my patio and home with the smell of grape bubble gum. One day the mass of bare vines have just the first hint of puffiness, and a week and a half later I have this. They peak for just a few days. If I'm lucky enough, it happens on a weekend, as it has this year. So, any minute now, people will be arriving for Mass Wysteria.
I've always had trouble photographing the blooms (and this house in general, actually). The night one came out well, I thought, although with my little flash I can't get the whole patio cover in.
