Wisteria Tree

Spring in Jacksonville!

It's Spring here in Jacksonville, FL.  It's actually been pretty overcast the past couple of weeks, so our spring is surprisingly moving quite slowly.  Last year Spring flew by here in about a week.  We may actually get  2-3 weeks out of this one.

My neighbor has this gorgeous Wisteria Tree in their front yard and I've noticed that it's fading quickly.  I thought I'd better get a photo or two of it before the blooms go away completely.

The petals gathering in the tall grass under the tree was nearly as beautiful as the flowers.

I'm in the midst of making wedding plans and these flowers make me think of bridesmaid dresses. ha ha No bridesmaid of mine will wear anything like this though, I promise.

What a beautiful tree.

Have a great day!

Our online store has opened and Steve and I are working together to design and sell a variety of gear online! Visit KNS Gear to see all our stuff. We're starting off with organ donation and transplant tees an d mugs, but there's lots more to come, including fun and funny, spiritual, event and topical products. Stay tuned!

Just want to mention that all these designs are available in both men's and women's shirts, including tees, long-sleeve tees, hoodies, polos, and more on the Zazzle site. They are also available in a variety of colors, depending on the design.

Wisteria is beautiful! Not sure I've seen one in person, do they have a strong scent? Something makes me think of Lilac when I see them? Maybe the coloring being similar?

We haven't had anything remotely resembling a spring yet. But we're hoping it's on it's way. Please send it NORTH!!!!!

Hey Lisa -- The scent of Wisteria is quite strong. I had quite the headache just trying to get a few shots of the tree. The Wisteria tree is a lot more like a vine, than a tree or bush like a lilac. The are both brilliantly purple, though, and that's great!!

I hope you all get some Spring, soon!!
