welcome to my space. How are you? … not the ‘fine’ answer please – HOW are YOU? The month of May is mental awareness month and the week just gone by is dedicated to this. I decided to make this post now because the purple blooms of the wisteria add a dash of colour to otherwise drab buildings and streets as well as our lives.
Hope this serves as a guide for those looking to take walks and pictures and also as a form of relaxation to everyone reading.
I’ve got a special place for the Wisteria as I got engaged taking photos of them while on Holiday in Portugal’s Sintra (right by Quinta da Regaleira).
The Wisteria in London is best seen from the last week of April to the 2nd week of May and with a bit of a research I have been able get the street names and postcodes on 25 of the best ones in London.
Take a moment also to embrace the bloom as they wouldn’t be around for so long.
ps; While taking your walks or photos, kindly do these respectfully as most are located in neighbourhoods people live in or properties that are in the market.
