Purple Rain

Or is this purple snow?

It was so windy today...my poor wisteria lost a lot of petals. Fortunately it has a few left.
Ernest and I, walking home in the wind, took a look at each other and said, "Kites."


KITES!!!


It was really too windy for Ernest's quad-line stunt kite. It crashed into the ground and broke a rod. Which necessitates a trip to a kite store. Kite store? The handy husband found one for us, on the way to where we are going on Wednesday.

Here's what a real stunt kite can do, when flown by a professional:

Your wisteria is beautiful!!
I wish it was nice enough here to fly a kite right now. It's spitting snow. :-(

Your wisteria is lovely - mine isn't at that point yet - our blooms are just getting started.

I love the Wisteria but here it has a life span of maybe a week or ten days. Way too short but I love it while it's around. Great photos, btw.
