Not all the beautiful plants are in the garden

At Homeward Bound, I mean. These lovelies are on the fences just outside the dog kennels. I think they’re called listeria. They attract these really cool black jumbo bumble bees. I think they are bumble bees.

I have tried to shoot the flowers many times over the years but have never succeeded in capturing them in the way I intended. That’s not to say that none of the photos are nice. Just not what I wanted. I’m letting go of that and just accepting what I get instead.

    Beautiful!! So glad it’s Wisteria and not Listeria (a bacteria that can make you deathly ill!). Altho photos of listeria might be interesting, but probably wouldn’t smell as good… 😉


  2. Beautiful!
