Before the weather turned chilly again, we’ve enjoyed very mild temperatures. It’s easy to think the winter has gone, when the temperature is 22ºC and the flowers are blooming.
Only a few days ago, the wisteria in the yard was pretty much asleep. Now, it’s giving us a hint of its beauty.
I know the plant as glicine (ˈɡlitʃine). Its Italian name derives from the Greek glykýs, which means ‘sweet’. Wisteria evokes the warm, sunny afternoons spent underneath a pergola by the lake in my hometown. I can’t wait to see this one at its peak.
