[tweetmeme] I took this photo yesterday of the flowering wisteria vine in the backyard. Purple is of course my favorite color. See more of my plant and flower photos at Sooz Photography.
Information about wisteria on Wikipedia:
Wisteria (also spelled Wistaria) is a genus of flowering plants in the pea family, Fabaceae, that includes ten species of woody climbing vines native to the eastern United States and the East Asian states of China, Korea, and Japan. Aquarists refer to the species Hygrophila difformis, in the family Acanthaceae, as Water Wisteria.
Wisteria vines climb by twining their stems either clockwise or counter-clockwise round any available support. They can climb as high as 20 m above ground and spread out 10 m laterally. The world’s largest known Wisteria vine is located in Sierra Madre, California, measuring more than 1 acre (0.40 ha) in size and weighing 250 tons.
[tweetmeme] I took this photo earlier today of the flowering plant at Design Annex that has been coming back to life now that it’s down on the main floor of the space and not getting so much light up in the loft.
I spotted a big bumble bee on a flower during my walk home. Had to take a photo!
Some other photos I took on the walk home …
