Wisteria and Sunshine 

This weekend, my show opened, so the weekend was busy, to say the least. But I still got a moment to sit and relax and enjoy the lovely weather on the deck. The view reminded me of the ad from Enchanted April, which I also watched this weekend. And I do enjoy wisteria and sunshine.

Sunday was the first really warm day we’ve had since spring began. I had risen early to set my hair for a matinee performance, and had watched the film with my breakfast. The local bakery has chocolate-cherry bread for sale on the first Saturday of each month, so I had special bread, tea, and melon. Then, as the weather warmed up, I found myself with an hour to spare while baking a strawberry-rhubarb crisp for the post-matinee party. So I made another pot of Earl Grey, grabbed a book of short stories, and found a shaded spot on the deck to sit and read and sip tea. You see, Boyfriend and I plan to move at the beginning of the summer, and I thought I ought to enjoy it while I can.

I took a little turn around the yard at one point. It’s not a long walk, but you can see there is some interest. There at the back, there’s what looks a bit like the foundations of an old stone house or shed. I examined it a bit, although I’d looked at it before, and went over to check out the jungle of flora growing around the decorative basin to one side. Quite a lovely little garden. So lovely, in fact, that I decided I didn’t want to leave after all. But that is a story for another day.

  1. You have wisteria already, oh my gosh!!! That’s flat out awesome. We don’t have any at our house (a wee condo with no yard save for a speck of green in the front of it), but growing up one of the houses – a charming two story gem that was built in 1909 – had it slithering elegantly all across the back porch/deck and I loved it to bits. I really think that wisteria has to be one of the most beautiful smelling flowers ever. It usually blossomed here in the summer, which is why I was so excited to see it appear in May already for you. How lovely!

    Big hugs & many thanks for your wonderfully nice blog comment today,

    1. Well I’ll just have to make sure to post lots of wisteria pictures for you! We’re sitting on the porch with drinks this evening and every so often the wind changes and brings a whiff of wisteria perfume to us. It’s really quite lovely. Thank you for your lovely comment as well!
