wild wisteria rainy day


The wisteria is growing on the trees next to the end of the highway. One side of the parking lot has a few spaces where you can see it so I sat in my car to sketch this. It’s raining but I had to get out of here for a few minutes. Plus, these are my last few days here and I might not get another chance to sketch this clump of wisteria.

Now I can’t wait to get out of here. This morning there was a fire in one of the apartments undergoing renovations. The renovations are loud, then the smoke alarm will wake the dead, sirens and fire trucks.

Some guys were coming over to get a sofa I’m giving away and couldn’t get in for a little while. So now that’s gone and I have room for more boxes.

Normally I’m as cool as a cucumber but I think a little case of nerves in showing up in this sketch. Good thing I did the sketch. I got the nerves on the paper, now I can get back to packing. That’s how art therapy works for me.

  1. Gosh! I’m glad Your okay and Bon Voyage! And Your wisteria is lovely! When I was a little girl there was wisteria all over this island. I remember entire roads that would be purple with fallen flowers. And the smell! Divine. It’s been mostly removed as I guess it kills trees. But man…..I thrill whenever I see it! Great job! 🙂

    1. Still ok here. That sounds like a beautiful memory of your island, thanks for sharing. I can picture it. Wisteria is probably an invasive species but it’s pretty and kind of sad looking, I think. Thanks about the sketch! Have a good day up there, Katy!

      1. Sad looking?! 🤣Ahh…I LOVE different perspectives! It’s the height of romance and whimsy to me. Now every time I see some I’m going to chuckle and picture You bringing it a cup of hot cocoa and telling it everything is going to be okay! 😅Ah. Thanks for the laugh! And Thank You! I hope You have a good day as well! Cheers!!! 🙂

      2. Hey, Katy, I looked it up and wisteria does symbolize romance, but it hangs down so it also symbolizes endurance in the face of hardship. And it lives long so it’s multigenerational wooing under the vines. 🙂

      3. Oh wow, Chris! That’s so cool! Loving “…it’s multigenerational wooing under the vines.” Pretty sweet and I really like endurance in the face of hardship. I’d never heard that. Thank You! You ROCK even harder now! 😃I hope You have a beautiful day! Cheers! 🤗❤️😊
