Our wisteria wall — Interim report

Previously on Radio Free Daglan, I reported with great glee on the development of a large number of blossoms on the two wisteria vines on the front wall of our house in Daglan. (Last year, we had exactly one flower.) I called my April 1st posting “Wisteria hysteria,” and offered this photographic evidence:

Those strange growths are the beginnings of our wisteria flowers.

And now, almost two weeks later, with a bit of rain and some nice sunny days, we have progress. Here’s a photo, taken yesterday, of the array of still-developing flowers on the vine that’s on the right side of our front steps:

A host of blossoms are growing here.

In the interest of fairness, here’s the vine on the left side of the front steps, above our garage:

Not as many blooms, but not bad either.

Clearly these vines have more to offer, so this is only an interim report. I’ll post again once the flowers hit full maturity — in a week or two or three. In the meantime…

A break from blogging. I’ve just finished my busiest season of professional writing (for clients in Canada) and so I plan to take a bit of a break from Radio Free Daglan. I’ll be back in full swing, after an appropriate rest. Until then, all best wishes from the RFD team.

    Oh dear! To save me time checking every day, roughly how long are you not going to be producing Radio Free Daglan

      Couple of weeks, I suspect. But the best solution is simply to subscribe (you can do that at the top right of each blog posting). Then, each time a posting is published, you get an email. Simple as that. You can choose to look at it right away, or save the email until you have time. So it’s pretty painless.
