Chris was cleaning up in the back yard this weekend and found Wisteria in bloom! We had it on our planting wish list, and there it was. We must have missed it in August when it was done flowering and surrounded by the overgrown jungle in the back yard. It has opened up all across the neighbor’s back shed and grown two stories up into the trees. We can see the purple blooms from all of the back windows in the house. Who planted it there? The vine looks old. Who were they? Who planted the tiny purple violets in the yard that exactly match the ones on the old teacup that I use every morning? Someone cared about this place a long time ago. We are excited to uncover more about the lives that went on here before us.
