Hi everyone! It's me, Autumn!We are bummed for the second year in a row. Just as our wisteria was coming into bloom, we got frost two days in a row. It kills the flower buds and ruins our beautiful flower display for the entire year!
It's kind of hard to see all of the limp and dying flower buds but trust me, they're there! We wait all year to see our Cook's Purple Wisteria bloom!
This is how our wisteria is supposed to look! This photo was taken 3-4 years ago~
As you can see our wisteria has grown quite a bit and mom prunes it 2-3 times in one summer!Our artist friend, Miss Barbara, even painted an Airedale using our wisteria and our barn. No, we don't own the painting. This is one of the photos in her book.Our wisteria will bloom again this summer - "Cook's Purple" blooms more than once during the summer - but it won't be as showy because it will have leaves on the vine next time it blooms.
Dad suggested for next year that if we hear frost is coming to throw a tarp over it!
How come you didn't suggest it this year, dad?!
Our DWB calendar says that today is International Bandana day!
See you all next Wednesday!
