In love with Wisteria and an old rock home...

Each morning on our Nature walk, we pass this beautiful old rock home... I gaze at it longingly... imagining "what if it were mine"??? ... it is listed on our State Historical Register, one of the first homes in Centerville in the 1800's... it is made from rocks washed down from the nearby hills... as many of the homes in my area are... Centerville is a quaint little town, where alot of years~old traditions are still kept... in nearby Farmington, where my sister lives, all new businesses must incorporate these wonderful natural rocks in their architecture... I love that! ...

The grounds are immaculate... but what is most impressive, besides the beautiful stone house, is the breathtaking wisteria clamboring up the side of it...

I love how the graceful blooms look against the old rock wall...

Let's take a closer look... their delicate fragrance is sooo Heavenly...

I used to paint some... the other day there were several artists sitting with their easels set up, painting this beautiful wall of Wisteria... I want to join them... perhaps I shall get my easel and paints out once more... the sun is shining today and the clouds are gone... it promises to be a most beautiful day...

Did you know the old~fashioned meaning for Wisteria is "Welcome Fair Stranger"... If this were my home, I would have a beautiful sign painted that said that to hang outside my beautiful Wisteria covered old rock home... I love to daydream about such pretty things that touch my heart... yes, today is a most lovely Spring day... sending happy thoughts to you and wishes for beautiful things that touch your heart as well... xoxo
