After all the wisteria in the area has bloomed and is nothing but vines, my wisteria releases an abundance of purple flowers. I'm glad mine blooms late, because I get to enjoy "wisteria season" a lot longer! When I see wisteria, I feel like the Grinch ... but not the mean one who slithered into Whoville under the cover of darkness and stole Christmas. Rather, I feel like the Grinch after the true meaning of Christmas came through ... you know, in the scene where his heart grew three sizes! I don't know what it is about wisteria that makes me so happy ... but it always does!
