Spring Flowers from my Garden

My garden is a jungle of beautiful flowers. They are taking over the house! Some are good for weaving baskets.


Lorapetalum with Akebia taking over house

Akebia quinata, a beautiful vine for weaving

Akebia quinata, also known as Chocolate Vine, smells like grapes to me.

Wisteria growing wild.

Hi Lynn~

Wow! All of those blossoms look like pure heaven to me! You are so lucky to have wild wisteria growing in your region. I have always loved that flower. Looks like you'll have lots of weaving material from your Akebia quinata vine. Happy Gardening!
