Wisteria Hysteria hits Echo Park

I knew this would happen. We leave town for a few days and our wisteria vine explodes. A cloud of lavender and pale white blossoms hangs above our backyard deck and brushes up against the back of our house. I noticed that the vines up in Elysian Heights, several blocks north of us, had begun to bloom like crazy late last month. I guess the wisteria peaked in our section of Echo Park, which is further south and closer to Sunset Boulevard, last week. I’m not sure why the vines are blooming at different times but I’m enjoying the show – and the fragrance – while it lasts. How’s your wisteria doing?
