A brief joy of the late Spring is when these regal mauve and white flowers put on a stunning display. You expect to see them in English country towns, clinging to honey-coloured stone and around the doorways of grand homes.
But wisteria also makes its way into the city and less fanciful locations. I spotted a terraced house in Shepherd’s Bush here in west London, bursting with flowers. This is an area with its fair share of urban grit, so this was a sobering sight.
The house was being renovated, so I slid up the pathway to catch these shots. One of them is drained of its yellow and purple hues – it just has to be done, really…

Some lovely shots, Mike. My problem is that any photos I take of flowers are just that, photos of flowers. You’ve created some very arty shots here, and they work really well! :)
Thank you Richard :) Well you know me, I can’t resist the florals!
How often do we look closely at the form of flowers – love the in tight photos
Thank you Diana. Well yes. Those cascades of wisteria are familiar, but not so much close up. But you can tell it’s a member of the pea family…
