Wordless Wednesday

I saw it when I drove to work. I saw it in the backyard when I made a visit to a student’s home. I saw it when I drove past a vacant parking lot in a not so great part of town. And one day, when I was leaving school in a rush and didn’t find the time to look up, well, the aroma was so strong that I couldn’t help but notice it. Yep. Wisteria is blooming all overRead more
