wisteria comes...succulent magic pine coneburst of violet
The wisteria is as lovely as the caption. Ours are done in California.
Lovely fresh picture.
It does have a pine cone shape! I've never thought of that. Wisteria time is one of my favorite times in our garden.
I love these little 'haiku' moments. Many thanks.Greetings from London.
Beautiful imagery, Willow. "Pine cone burst"...great visual! <3
I love wisteria and do not have a shrub of it. I must remedy that but I've heard they can take five years to flower and I'm much too impatient to wait.
Love this! Succulent magic pine cone - yes!
Hello Willow,Beautiful Wisteria. I'm not sure I have the hang of this Haiku form but this will be an opportunity to learn!
nice play with the words. it rather does look like a colorful pine cone. have a great start to your week!
I have a 10 year old wisteria and as yet 0 blooms. I am mauve with envy. Enjoy the patio.
Yeah!Such a lovely haiku.The season of lilac, wisteria, peonies.No wonder we are quite giddy with it all.Happy week.

Beautiful!Have a nice day :)
Sooo pretty--and so close to the house? Aren't you bold!
A perfect Haiku!
my head is full of memories when i see wisteria.happy, and sweet memories of my grandmother.thank you.
Gorgeous picturewonderful haikupraise to youfor sharing!
love, love, love wisteria and yet to grow any in my yard, I need to get on that. It is already fading here though :(
Each word is so carefully selected. The lines are all good and the punch at the end is wonderful, but I love the line "wisteria comes" -- it suggests that it just floats in on a breeze, to me.Kat
A beautiful lavender pine cone. How grand!
I love wisteria. Even the name is poetry.
One of my favorites, they're done here also. When we bought the place next door in the city all those years ago, the previous owner had had a wisteria that she got tired of (?!) and so cut it down and mowed over the spot for I don't know how many years. When we got the place I turned the front yard into a wildflower garden and as soon as it quit being mowed, that wisteria came back.Great haiku.
You truly engage the senses...the breeze, the shape and smell, the punch of color in the Spring. Lovely Haiku!
I like the comment about the lavender pine cone. Great photo, Willow. You should really join our town shoot outs. You have some camera skills you should be sharing more often.
Lovely poem & photo; you really capture the haiku spirit!
Your haiku is beautiful, Willow...and your photo enhances the overall experience! Thanks so much for joining us on this haiku festival...mmm...I love wisteria too! Happy Day :o)
Beautiful! Mine are still in the bud stage, but soon...very soon!
And the color of wisteria - gorgeous!
Ah, at last your beloved Wisteria is saturating your senses.

Yes! It really is like a pinecone! Fabulous description of your lovely image here. Beautiful!

Willowa lovely haiku for the beautiful wisteria - fujiHappy days
I have a large pine cone. I am tempted to paint it a lilac color! Haiku so appropriate.
I wish I could have been at the family gathering, what a joy it must have been. The smell of freshly cut grass, the giggles of Aunt Betty, ah yes...I too love the Nelson-Atkins Museum, it is one of my most treasured places.
Hi Shell! We missed you!!! Aunt Betty has the most delightful little giggle, doesn't she? :^) Is your email the same? I'll forward some pics.
