Wisteria "tree"

Near Helen, we passed this tree that had been taken over by a wisteria vine. There is an oak tree underneath, but it has been dead for a while and the vine is using it for support.

We next went to Dahlonega, GA. It is a wonderful little town where the first "gold rush" occured. They still have panning for gold there.

I am always a sucker for butterflies and bees like this one that landed on the native azalea.

Oh my goodness....I simply adore Wisteria....you'd think you were in England where there seems to be a lot more of it than in N.Ireland....the only place I know has a lot is our Government House where it cover the walls and is a sight to behold when it is in bloom....thanks for posting this photo - it is simply beautiful...and can we ever imagine what it would be like if the good Lord didn't send us these wonderful creations to feast our eyes on.
