Buds into blooms — hurrah!

My regular springtime reporting on our glycine vines continues. Just two and half weeks ago, on March 22, I posted “A nice early start (for our wisteria)” and showed off the flowers that were just developing on the vine that grows on the right-hand side of our front stairs.

(Just in case you were in any doubt, that would be the “right-hand side” as you face the house, and not as you look out from the steps.)

This is what the ends of that vine looked like:

Almost ready to become actual flowers.

Now, what a difference two and half weeks can make. Here is the same section of vine as of this afternoon:

A pretty nice display.

And what about the vine on the left-hand side? Nothing. Nada. Zilch. Rien. Could it be time to rip it out and install a honeysuckle?

    Such graceful, artfully draped glycine! Hope they’re the kind that smells nice. In other news, our friend who lives just outside of Oxford says that it snowed – snowed! – two days ago.

      Thanks, Pamela. No, sadly, our wisteria are the non-fragrant kind. And I did hear about the snow in England — well, April can be the cruelest month!

    No wisteria, but plenty of hysteria here in your old hometown! Covid rates are at an all time high and our Govt. has really cocked things up with getting our paid-for dosages. Finally, Biden stepped in and he is lending Canada their surplus A-Z. Hmmm, wonder why we don’t get delivery of their Pfizer or Moderna, instead? Lorne, so glad your dream of living in France has come true. I remember you talking about this back in the day when you called on us at CIBC Marketing, back in the day. Happy trails to you and Jan!

      Thanks so much, Lynn. Wonderful to hear from you, after all this time. Yes, Jan and I are loving life here — well, with the exception of being stir-crazy, because of the pandemic. But this too shall pass. I hope. And soon! Meanwhile, all the best!
