When I was a youngster we had a wisteria bush and the heady perfume is one of my strongest scent memories.  Like Proust’s madeline, one wiff of the scent of  wisteria sends me into a reverie of memories.  The wisteria were in full bloom during a recent paint out at Mayfield Park.  I tried to capture the scent in paint.  I hope I succeeded somewhat.
