FOTD – August 31 – White Wisteria

My wisteria vine is beginning it’s Springtime blossoming as the multitude of ‘catkins’ rapidly expand and the buds open out to show off their beautiful white and yellow petals and release their delightful perfume around my garden. 🙂

Today i noticed a curious coincidence as white with a splash of yellow is also the colour scheme of some of our cockatoo’s, and the individual wisteria flowers have more than a passing resemblance in shape to yesterday’s FOTD, the Templetonia retusa which is also named ‘Cocky’s tongues’! 🙂

Dozens of catkins await their turn to expand into voluminous white cascades. 🙂

Cee’s Flower of the Day – August 31, 2019 – Dahlia





    • Had these in my garden for over 30 years.

      You don’t see all that many out here and the purple ones do seem to be more prevalent. 🙂

      The buds on these begin as light lilac colour but open out brilliant white with a yellow ‘stripe’. I’ll see if i can get a good shot when they open more. 🙂
