A year ago, while our family of 7 was still living in a tiny rental house here in Georgia (after a crazy 3,000 mile cross-country winter-storm filled move from the PNW)… we visited a wonderful local-ish nursery.
It was several months after our move and we were still searching for our dream home (since the deal fell through on the house we were planning on buying, just a week before we made the actual trip).
We had no where to plant this lovely native wisteria, that was already beginning to bloom in its container, yet we bought it anyway as a sign of hope that we would eventually find a place to plant our roots and grow here.
A few months later we stumbled upon a gorgeous 100+ year old farmhouse in a tiny town in the countryside an hour South of Atlanta… and we knew from the very first moment we laid eyes on it… that this is home. We bought the house, moved into it in July and ultimately found a perfect place to plant this wisteria next to our big southern wrap-around porch (and near what is now our spring straw bale garden)… and this month it’s blooming once more as a sign of hope of many new seasons to come here at our lovely little Permaculture Farm!
