A long-awaited bud

See that? Know what it is?
It is a wisteria bud on one of the plants
that climb our front porch posts. 

After nearly 10 years of waiting,
all the while, trimming back
the proliferation of branches and leaves
that they manage to produce,
we are finally getting flowers!
Or at least one.

Not sure if it was the stretch of
mid-90° temps we had
or that dh cut them back last fall
but I'm doing the happy dance now!

We had decades-old plants
growing on our fence in Alabama
so when we bought this house
I planted two here and waited...

The waiting is now over
 and I will be perfectly happy
if this is the only flower we ever get.
It brings back good memories.
