Sad Demise

On a recent walk through Hereford I noticed an old friend had gone. She'd cheered up visitors to the Cathedral for two weeks every May for many years, but this year her presence will be missed, she's gone forever.

The building which supported her was in need of some work, so the contractors took a hacksaw and chopped her off just above the roots, a sad end for a beautiful wisteria which had flowered her heart out every year, covering the large Georgian building with purple chandeliers.

I'm relieved I managed to get some photos before this happened, and had a chance to paint some of the flowers.
