Blue Spring

Wisteria close-up

As well as the hazy carpet of bluebells in the woods, a cascade of wisteria is suddenly flowing over walls.  The scent is delicious.

This is a great time to sketch the flowers and check how they hang from the branches.

There’s lots of wisteria in London and all around the country.  This lovely gate is in the charming island of Jersey.

This book has some lovely examples of wisteria and how to paint it.
