I am a collector of old things. Some of them I sell to others who like me
want to preserve these old memories for the next generations.

Two years ago we planted wisteria on our then new pergola. We have nurtured this plant, watched it grow in size and coverage, and hoped for a beautiful flower display "someday". I was told not to expect this for
2 or 3 years.
Now last week I happened to be in that area of the yard about something else and looked up and saw the wonderful burgundy blossoms of our wisteria vine. Well, was I surprised!!!!
First, I expected purple. When we purchased this vine we asked the nurseryman for purple, the most common color for wisteria.
Seondly, with all our drought I did not expect to even see it surviving as it has. The blooming has just began. I expect more.
I am now the proud mama of a flowering wisteria vine.
