The photohunt theme this week is twisted and I thought I'd feature a twisted plant. Below is a closeup of a bloom on a very twisted vine. The vine is wisteria and I took these shots early this week at the end of a trail I walk on. I am always on the lookout for the wisteria to bloom and it rewarded me. The first shot doesn't show how twisted it is. But never fear, I'm sure you didn't think I'd manage to do a photohunt with only one shot.
If you look at the shot below you can see how the wisteria is twisted around on itself as well as how it has twisted around the trees. If you look at the next shot you can see how it has twisted its way around many trees. I've heard that wisteria can be so twisted as to bring down small trees with its weight. Now that's twisted when you think about it. A pretty flower on a vine seducing you in the spring until bam, it pulls down a tree.One last shot of the wisteria is below. I'll admit that I love wisteria and am including the last one because I think it's prettier than the middle shots which emphasize the twisted nature of the wisteria. Perhaps I'm not very twisted (although those who know me best might argue that point) because I like the first shot and the last shot where the emphasis is more on the flowers than the twists and turns.
I hope everyone has a great weekend. On Saturday participants post at the home of the hunt, here - PhotoHunt to let you know their posts are up. Some like me, tend to post early, and you can browse the early bird photohunters at technorati, here -photohunt
