Today's Flowers, Scenic Sunday, Blue Monday, Mellow Yellow / Wisteria in the Bay Area

 Click on photos to enlarge!
I so enjoyed the wisteria in the San Francisco Bay area on my recent visit.
These were among the grape vineyards of  Livermore, California USA.

This is from another perspective of the top photo.  
It was breezy so I tried a slower shutter speed to play with motion blur...1/15 second.

All flowers and vines are dancing in breeze! Pastel purple is stunning! In Nara, wisteria season is over, I'm happy to see beautiful wisteria again!!
Have a nice weekend!

These are gorgeous images. I live in Massachusetts and I get a real kick out of my wisteria plant that only produces two or so bunches. :-)

Beautiful blue colours - flowers like feathers. The one in the middle is almost like a painting!

Whitish purple wisteria look so soft and lovely. Your slowing shutter speed brought an interesting effect especially on the second photo. I wonder what the purple plants are, maybe lavender? I'm glad you also have the joy of seeing wisteria in your place.

Wow - these are great shots of the wisteria. I planted one 2 years ago but it's nothing like these - I'm hopeful for this year !
