    The wisteria in our courtyard is going crazy!

    Have the bumble bees showed up yet? My parents have a big Wisteria in their yard and it is always covered with BB's this time of year.

    Vines. Effing hate em.

    As bad as Virginia Creeper or Kudzu.

    One I've found on my property in abundance shoots rhizones and travels horizontally above ground, periodically throws down anchor roots and in some cases sprouts full sized trees. Garbage plants.

    Don't plant it next to your house. I learned the hard way. And it won't die!

    RichJ, yes, the BBs have arrived. I don't bother them and they don't bother me.

    I love wisteria. Here we have poison ivy, poison oak, poison sumac... sigh.
    My lilacs smell wonderful right now, though.
