Wisteria pods (photo)

Wisteria is a genus of the pea family (Fabaceae) so it’s no surprise that that these look like, well, peas in a pod – actually, they’re more like beans.

We cut back a huge wisteria and found beautiful, velvety pods hiding among the forest of leaves – most around 25cm long. There was also a lone stem of flowers that had forgotten to bloom in April. (Click image for higher-res).
