A glimpse of wisteria

The season when the wisteria blooms in England is very short indeed, which is a pity as it's such a pretty blossom. I love the colour - it's a more delicate mauve than lilac blossom. So I always make a point of peeking over this gate when I'm down in the centre of Saltaire, to see the brief show of flowers climbing up this stone wall. Very occasionally the gate is open and you can see the whole shrub, but I rather like the peephole effect when it's closed (though I have to stand on tiptoe to see it!) The building is the Stables, beside the canal and right opposite what was at one time Sir Titus Salt's private quarters in the Mill. I featured the Stables before - click here if you want to know a bit more about them.

  5. Love wisteria! I used to enjoy walking through a wisteria covered pergola where I used to work and ohhh the fragrance is so heavenly too! Nicely framed shot. ~Lili
