Looking up into summer


Looking up into summer

Looking up into the domed structure covered with wisteria, I thought it was a beautiful way to show off the plant, underneath was a curved seating area which looked along a mowed path into the meadow!
This was at Wyken vineyard in Suffolk

I love that, Sticki...it's a bit classier than mine...I've got pergola envy now... lol! ;)

What a view !!

29 May, 2012

 

Thats an unusual shot, and lovely too.

29 May, 2012

 

Isn't that a great idea! We've been working out what sort of framework to put up outside the summerhouse so that a very eager wisteria can get a grip and give some scented shade in future years. Now how to replicate this.....?

great picture looks great:))))

With the sky that blue it was lovely to look up, wasn't sure if you could see the idea well enough though, I have a picture looking towards it if that helps? This was in an amazing garden and rather nice house (I don't think you can go in it). The structure here is metal. I'm not sure much else would be strong enough?

Thank you Karen, Paul, Cinderella, gattina and Mark.

29 May, 2012

 

GOrgeous pic!!!!! :)))))

29 May, 2012

 

what a view, blue and that green contrast with the purple flowers, great shot Sticki....

29 May, 2012

 

thanks kasy, pixi and surreylad, i just love blue and green, most of my photos are blue and green!!!!

29 May, 2012

 

they do complement each other well...

29 May, 2012

 

they always used to say 'blue and green should never be seen' but i disagree!!!

29 May, 2012

 

me too, my dry area is full of blue flowers and green, great match i think...

29 May, 2012

 

admittedly it has to be the right blue and green but i just love them together!!

maybe that explains my contrary nature!!

29 May, 2012

 

Lol :-) i like my blue's and dark colours but the girls like green so that's how i found out they went well together...

29 May, 2012

 

good team work too!!!

29 May, 2012

 

yes they make great helpers :-)

29 May, 2012

Absolutely stunning

29 May, 2012

 

it was a lovely place to be yorks

29 May, 2012

 

I bet it was, lucky you.

29 May, 2012

 

That's a lovely photo, Sticki. I always love looking up at a blue sky through green leaves - just magic!

29 May, 2012

 

found it on the internet yorks, only about 25 mins from youngest son

thanks melchi, i like that too

29 May, 2012

 

well done you.

29 May, 2012

 

What a lovely view

29 May, 2012

 

wouldnt mind it in my garden [with the permanent blue sky of course] would you clarice?

29 May, 2012

 

I sure would, mind you it would more than likly cover all my garden :))

29 May, 2012

 

too big for mine too but i can always dream!!

29 May, 2012

 

That's true :)))

29 May, 2012

 

...is it not "red and green, which should never be seen...except upon an Irish colleen"...?...

...anyway, whichever - it's not true!!!! :)))

I'm glad that my wisteria isn't climbing up this...
...or I'd have to be stunting its growth every day...lord! what a job that would be!!! ;))))

29 May, 2012

 

i found this quote
"Red and Green Should Not Be Seen" and "Blue and Green Should Never Be Seen Without Something in Between"

so you are right karen

29 May, 2012

 

Aah well, that just about finishes the entire garden then! lol!!! ;))))))))

29 May, 2012

 

but everyone who was commenting on it liked the colours together ~ they were designers!!

29 May, 2012

 

thanks willinilli

er no!!! i was sitting very properly on the seat provided!! after that i went to the cafe/restaurant and had moroccan mint tea!!!

29 May, 2012

 

Maybe you should go for a Wisteria Sticki - it'd seek out the light.

Just a thought.............

I love this colour of Wisteria. I have a pink one outside my back door and it is the highlight of my year when it flowers. This is a really nice way to show it.

Sounds lovely Linda, I dont have a wisteria but I certainly enjoyed looking at this one.
