vendredi fleurs...

This weeks photo was taken in our village. There is something about wisteria or glycine as it is known in France, that is timeless and it has a certain allure.

The hot weather is set to continue here in SW France until next Thursday so I have been spending the week painting my shutters/volets and in the evenings we have been have lakeside picnic suppers.

Last night it was especially warm late in the evening and it made me think of lovely tropical evenings in Queensland, Australia - well a girl can dream can't she? Enough dreaming, it is back to the painting for me.

Wishing you all a fabulous weekend, hope that the sun is shining where you are...

Je vous souhaite à tous un fabuleux week-end, j'espère que le soleil brille où vous êtes...

  1. I love Wisteria - such a gorgeous colour. We have lovely weather here too. I hope it is a sign of good things to come. xx

  2. Hi Leeann,

    I love the pretty wisteria .... Last weekend we had to cut our big wisteria back as it was doing such damage to the trellis near our front entrance.

    Have a wonderful weekend

  3. This has made me think of the wisteria coveing my mother's back verandah in central west NSW. It must be over 100 years old and I miss it so much!

  4. your wisteria is just lovely, glad there is warmth somewhere in the world!!

  5. You are so right. There is something wonderful about wisteria - it really is lovely.

  6. What a beautiful image! I love wisteria and have always wanted it in my garden.

    Bon weekend!

  7. wisteria looks fab! Lovely snap, thanks for sharing.

  8. What a beautiful image. Good luck with your shutters and enjoy your great weather!

  9. Buying wisteria today! I was planning on doing so yesterday but life had alternate plans!

    Happy Weekend!

  10. Dearest Leeann,

    Oh, the Wisteria is precious. I've done a blog about our varieties a couple of days ago. When we lived and worked in Italy, we once had lunch 'al fresco' at a restaurant. That was under a huge pergola with blooming wisterias... Makes it very memorable!

    Have a great weekend.

    Lots of love,


  11. Surprisingly wisteria reminds me of london as it is everywhere creeping up the front of the mews houses. I just love it - the bareness of winter, flowers in spring and lush green foliage in summer. Thank for visiting my blog Em xx

  12. Love the wisteria - so very pretty and the sunlight picking up that splash of lavender blue is gorgeous.

  13. I can smell the grape sweetness of the wisteria and can't wait for mine to hurry up and bloom! Thank you for such a lovely reminder of what is on the way!

  14. Oui, les fleurs sont présentes partout...

  15. This wisteria is beautiful. I have planted one on my patio but it looks nothing like this - yet! Have a lovely week. x Sharon

  16. Wisteria is such a beautiful plant. Your photos remind me of my trip to Paris several years ago! I am a new follower. I invite you to visit my blog.
