On Avenue Junot, a beautiful road that winds up the west of la Butte eventually joining rue Norvins which goes all the way up to the place de Tertre, there is a spectacular villa draped in wisteria.
In winter, while there are no flowers, the twisted vines wind their way up the building in wooden ropes weaving their way round railings and drainpipes.
This year the first flowers started to bloom at the beginning of April, earlier than last year.
And then a week later, the flowers were tumbling down the villa, and you could only catch glimpses of the coiled twisted branches.
Delicate purple flowers.
Wouldn't it be lovely if the Sacré Cœur was draped in wisteria
For the wisteria obsessed among you, more photos can be seen on my Flickr account here (thumbnails) and here (slideshow)
