This 144-Year-Old Wisteria In Japan Looks Like A Pink Sky

These stunning photographs, which look like a glorious late evening sky with dashes of pink and purple, are actually pictures of Japan’s largest wisteria (or wistaria, depending on whom you ask) plant.

This plant, located in Ashikaga Flower Park in Japan, is certainly not the largest in the world, but it still comes in at an impressive 1,990 square meters (or half an acre) and dates back to around 1870 (the largest, at about 4,000 square meters, is the wisteria vine in Sierra Madre, California). Although wisterias can look like trees, they’re actually vines. Because its vines have the potential to get very heavy, this plant’s entire structure is held up on steel supports, allowing visitors to walk below its canopy and bask in the pink and purple light cast by its beautiful hanging blossoms.

First 2.5 hours of the home inspection

Inspector: Everything looks great!


Last 15 minutes of the home inspection

Inspector: The toilet is leaking. Water is pouring out of the utility room ceiling. Oh, the sewer line is backing up and that could be 10k to fix.



Mom, no.

My Mom: What’s Pinterest?

Me: [screams internally]

Mom: Because I need to know how to pay them for deck lights.

Me: Mom, no. Pinterest is just a bookmarking site. You don’t buy things from Pinterest.

Mom: What’s a bookmark?

Me: [considers throwing myself down the stairs]

Mom: Anyhow, I called HGTV and they can’t seem to help me buy these lights off Pinterest so…

Me: Mom, NO!
