· England’s wisteria hysteria ·
There are many magical things about England. Honey-colored cities like Bath, Cambridge, and Oxford. Cathedrals dating back to the 1100s. Pubs from the 1600s. Being surrounded by history and the inspiration for stories like The Chronicles of Narnia, The Lord of the Rings, and Harry Potter. But perhaps one of the most magical things about England is when those historic buildings are covered in light purple wisteria every spring. Like ivy in the autumn, buildings blossom with the blooms every April, giving England a fresh spring makeover. Along with other flowers, the air smells sweet and warm sunny days hint at the summer to come. The hysteria is real.
