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.

Can’t I be strong and go to prom?
#GOD BLESS THIS GIFSET #fuck everyone who has ever called any of these women just a love interest #the only reason you think that is because you’ve associated strength and independence with unattachment and loneliness #these women are so much more than their romantic involvements #they’re warriors with complex emotions #people with soft sides and hard edges #fuck you if you project the love interest label onto these women because you selfishly can’t look past who they choose to date #they’re better than that #they deserve better than that (x)
I just happened to step into acting, and now I can’t imagine myself doing anything else.
