Wisteria -the draping mauve purple blossoms are greatly appreciated and celebrated in Japanese culture.  The Wisteria tunnel in Kawachi Fujien is the most strikingly beautiful and magical pathway filled with flowering Wisteria, enough said it’s surreal and makes you wonder this place really exists?

Hunting Wisteria in Vancouver is much more challenging than hunting cherry blossoms. They appear so random around various neighbourhoods around April-May. The harder you try doesn’t make you any easier to find them. We never know when we would bump into a large Wisteria Tree in a back lane or someone’s back yard. We just keep looking around…..without knowing our destination. It starts getting me to think about “process” vs “result”…are you a process or result driven person? I was thinking if I am result driven, I think I would give up on location scout of wisteria, as there’s no guidance on where to find them. If I’m not enjoying the process or journey, it would never get me to the place that I wanted to be.

Wisteria is my favourite spring blossoms and also how I name my site. With meanings of love, grace and bliss, Wisteria also have a meaning that meeting you means so much to me. I like to bring you to discover day to day beauty about life, and you as readers also mean a lot to me. The whole blog is my life journey = voyage and it doesn’t really have a main theme behind. To blog as business, this is the number 1 thing to avoid, to not have a purpose or theme behind. I understand this game rule but somehow I’m not quite following. I want to keep all my posts true to my experience as they make my life. I believe that law of attraction would be able to pull audience together instead of me trying so hard to create posts to impress readers. The last thing I wouldn’t do is to start getting projection of my individuality to fade.

Wisteria Voyage – at the end means welcome you to bits and deets of my life journey. I hope it inspires you little about capturing the positivity and beauty of your day to day life through my posts.

日本種植的紫藤花是最為整齊秀氣,一大條行人步道掛滿垂垂的紫藤,像是童話故事裡才會出現的風景呀,所以日本九州河內富士花園的紫藤隧道是世界聞名的夢幻步道。在溫哥華紫藤花並不是什麼熱門季節景點,甚至不會有人留意到,更不像日本有專門的公園種植紫藤花。在這裏看紫藤,都是屋主自己在院子裡種植,找不找得上就唯有靠運氣。沒有故意去找,反而在家裡附近的車庫巷子裡找到一棵盛放中的紫藤樹。

帶你沿途看人生風景 - 是我開始這個部落背後的主題。基本上我寫的東西都沒有什麼重點,在於一個部落客來講,是十分不該做的事情,沒主題的部落是沒有人看的。說得也對,可我就沒辦法像其他成功的部落客一樣寫得專門來吸引讀者。我不想故意找主題來寫,而偏離了我生活的軌跡,就讓我日常所經歷到幫我找主題。也許這不會讓我變成功,最少我知道這個部落很真實記載了我日常生活美好的點滴。

紫藤花是我最愛的花種,也是這個網站的名字。紫藤花語代表最幸福的時刻,也有歡迎您的意思。

    I fell in love with a house in West Vancouver also because of a 50 years old wisteria. We bought it the same day.
