Laburnum Arch

This is one of the highlights of the year in the big garden that I'm working to conserve.

Reminds me of the time (1980s?) when I acted in a production of J B Priestley's Laburnum Grove in the Church Hill Theatre. I was one half of a Cockney couple, and my abiding memory is that I had to eat a banana while delivering lines. Every night. For a week. I've never looked at bananas the same way since - but I still like laburnums.

It makes me want to dive into all that lime green and just float away! So well captured.

Thanks. It is hard to shoot as the shade is very deep -I used the flash off camera and tried to bounce light up into the canopy.
Still never feel I capture the real thing though -maybe that's as it should be.

Colin I'm with you bananas, I ate them green in Africa as a child, they didn't ripen to yellow due to the humidity, and never grew to like yellow ones.

Very spectacular! Colin's story reminds me of one of Coward's plays where I had to pop a choc in my mouth after on actor's line. He dried whilst the choc slowly melted down my sleeve and we all had to stifle giggles for the rest of the scene.

That must have been really funny. My husband got chocolates in hospital as a boy and didn't want to share them, so he hid them under the covers and got accused of much worse later on!

I came by to introduce myself, I am a fellow member of the Shameless Lions Writing Circle.

This photo reminds me of the Wisteria vine that I saw in southern California earlier this year, apparently it's the largest blossoming plant in the world... it was unthinkably huge, and incredibly lovely.
There is a photo (of a very small part) of it near the bottom of my page.
I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who loves plants!!

Glad to be in the circle with you.

Hi WS -thanks for looking in. I'll come and visit and see the plant. I love wisteria, I have one, but it's only 10 years old, a mere baby.

I need to put the lion link in my sidebar, but last time I tried something like that with a photo I blew all the margins on my blog.
