Wisteria has a smoky fragrance. You don't have to be really close to notice.
The other day I had a sudden thought: what if I made an opening through the boxwood? I pruned out some limbs, bobbed back the boxwood and now the pets have a new tunnel and I have a new axis.
The view through the center of the wisteria is toward a curved metal bench in front of an ancient juniper (red cedar). Behind the fence is what MIL used to call 'the patch' dotted with pecan trees. In summer it is nothing more than rough lawn. The view from the bench through the wisteria has flowers all year in the front garden, winter camellias, summer gardenias, the last flowers of fall.
There is more wisteria in the mass of boxwoods at left. I just prune them away from the trees and the box is seven feet tall in the center. I read somewhere once that a famous Botanical Garden in New York had a crew of several men to keep their wisterias pruned. Here there's just one old woman, but I try to keep up. Do you think it is worthwhile?
