Carpe Diem & IGWRT's Words Count - "Wisteria"

Wisteria at Magnolia Plantation, Charleston, SC

Lavender garnish
courts Charlestonian gray,
droning bees, sanguine.

by Margaret Bednar, April 9, 2013

The painting below was painted by Viviane of "Les Peintures De Viviane" from one of my photos.  I commented on how much I loved it, but she wasn't selling this one.  She painted another just for me and gave it to me!!  I had it framed and I just adore it.


Charleston gray refers to the local brick which originated in size and coloration early in the colonial period.  "Charleston Gray" bricks come out a rusty brown when properly fired and are called gray due to the coloration of the clay used.

This is for Carp Diem Imagination #5, Wisteria a haiku meme.

This is also linked with Imaginary Garden with Real Toad's "Words Count with Mama Zen".  The image I chose for inspiration is very similar to a wisteria bloom:

The colors really come out here, even without the photo -- but it's nice to see the photo, too.

Wow, that painting is gorgeous!

Wonderful about the painting, Margaret, and I can definitely see why the flower in the scientist's color sketch made you think of the wisteria.
I like your haiku, especially "droning bees" for reasons which I can't seem to articulate right now.

Nothing like an abundant wisteria, with its bumblebees and butterflies.
