French Wisteria

There is something about the wisteria in the French spring that seems particularly stylish. Not that there is anything wrong with our wisteria at home. In fact, my garden has some lovely specimens that flower outrageously. But the French wisteria vines have a certain je ne sais quoi like so much that is French…don’t get me started. Perhaps it is the context: the upper image is an iPhone rendering of a semi-abandoned formal mansion, on a main straeet in Millau, France, with the wisteria decoratively framing the front gate. The lower image is a conventional photo of a wall in a small village. Even the wisteria knows how to decoratively drape itself!
