Our new place came with a big old wisteria plant that was totally dominating a little decrepit arbor. This is the bush AFTER Jeremy trimmed it. He asked me what we could do with it, as it is an eye sore currently. I told him it needed something big to climb on that wouldn’t mind Wisteria’s take-over nature.
So, that’s what he did – for our anniversary Jeremy (and they guys) built a pergola. It’s huge. The Wisteria will LOVE it.
Thanks, Honey – it’s beautiful.

I *love* wisteria on a pergola! There was a prefectural park in the city where I grew up that had a huge one. I'm looking forward to pictures next spring! 😉
