Something to Ponder about

About Forestwoodfolk

Scandinavian culture, literature and traditions are close to my heart, even though I am Australian. I have Scandinavian, Frisian and Prussian/Silesian ancestry and for that reason, I feel a connection with that part of the world. I am an avid Nordic Crime fiction reader, and enjoy photography, writing and a variety of cooking and crafts, and traditional decorative art forms. Politically aware and egalitarian by nature, I have a strong environmental bent.

    • I thought I had replied already to you, but some gremlin has removed it!! Welcome to my blog and thank you ever so much for your lovely comment. The wisteria is special isn’t it? I photographed it as you would never find Wisteria like this in my part of Australia.

      I saw your reply before the gremlin got it – He does that to me sometimes too! That kind of wisteria only appears in my dreams, it’s so awesome!

    • Are you serious? Well it is very special then. I haven’t seen that many as it’s far too hot here.

      I think wisteria is probably the most beautiful plant in the world! It grows really well in south carolina and I brought some seeds here to egypt but they didn’t germinate. It gets really hot here too, maybe it doesn’t like too much heat?

    • Yes, I think it is definitely a cool climate plant. The only ones I have seen have been in the very southern end of Australia, and this one, which is in Tasmania,definitely the cooler end of the planet!!

    I thought I liked the Tassie one best … and then I found the Kiwiland ones, with the ducks.
    I ADORE ducks. I cannot resist ducks. So it’s the NZ gardens for me …. 😀

    • Some people are allergic and my grandmother used to believe that they were bad luck if kept as vase flowers. But I think they are beautiful. Easy to grow too. I sent some over to a friend in Iceland and they took off ( in a greenhouse) so now there are Australian wattle in Iceland. ( as a decorative plant, of course!)
