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.

The new Sensation Comics have been such a warm read, think the peak till now is the little Diana <3, she chatting with Athena like old pals, SO adorable!!!!! Can we have like a Young Amazons comic or something, please? Now that in the New52 there are amazons around the same age as Diana… Suddenly I discovered my ultimate comics dream (again).
