Last weekend, the monster wisteria growing over our shade structure burst into bloom. Over the week's time, it has burgeoned further, huge lavender racemes of flower dripping down. The vine masses over the structure's roof and twines onto our deck railings.
Its rampant stems wrap through the branches of our jacaranda tree - the wisteria blooms are the same color as the blooms that will grace the jacaranda in two more months.
In the house, the air is filled with the scent of blooming wisteria.
This morning the ocean mist filled the canyon, while the sun pinkened the sky.
