Wisteria and Roses

 I just can't get enough of my wisteria and roses.

 When they start blooming I actually get a little sad because I know they will only last a few weeks.

 Their beautiful scent, the buzzing of the bees, the sparkling of the sunshine peeking through the flowers will only be fleeting for the first few weeks of spring.

 They seem to be the first signs that winter is on the way out and the warm weather is on its way and soon all the other flowers will be appearing.

I really need to learn to spend more time just sitting under this pergola enjoying the beautiful arrival of spring and less time regretting how quickly it passes.

The first words in my head were 'Oh my gosh'.

This is so beautiful! Yes, do sit and just bask in this fleeting beauty. You can be sad afterwards, or look forward to and enjoy what else is blooming in your lovely gardens.

Please, what's the name of this rose cultivar?

Thurksh - this is rosa spinosissima also called the Scottish Rose.

That is amazingly beautiful. I am trying to find a way to get some wisteria on our early 1990's middle class lot.

Oh my, that is quite incredible! I've never actually seen wisteria in bloom other than pictures. Amazing.
