When I was a child I loved the wisteria vine in our yard. Every spring when it made its beautiful presence known I would run around the yard yelling “Wisteria!”

My sister called it my “Wisteria hysteria.”

Last year the wisteria didn’t answer Springs’ RSVP. I saw only a little of it in the backyard.

This year, however, it’s flourishing all over the yard.

And crowning the tops of trees.

Wisteria may share her glory with other blooming flowers.

But it’s still wisteria fever for me.

Sweet redbuds and lilacs are merely plain stepsisters compared to the exquisite Wisteria.
