Wisteria at Le Clos du Peyronnet


Wisteria! When the wisteria is in bloom, then you know it's springtime in Menton.

Here you see the glorious wisteria covering the pergola of the Clos du Peyronnet, one of Menton's famous gardens. You can visit but as it's a private garden, you need to make an appointment. Click on the link above to read more and click HERE to read an interview with the owner William Waterfield. This romantic garden - I adore it - has been in the same family for three generations.

Thanks to Virginia who reminded me it is 'wisteria time' with her lovely photographs from Birmingham, Alabama Daily Photo.

  11. Wisteria flows like silk over the edge and cascades down on the steps in showers of purple. The smells are intoxicating.

  17. Oh Jilly,
    How gorgeous. I think Menton has surpassed Birmingham's wisteria show this spring. Just beautiful.
