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.

WE GOT THE WORST SCORE ON THE TRIVIA THING OUT OF EVERY GROUP AND NOW THEY ALL HATE US BC WE WON BC OF HOW THE TEACHERS MULTIPLIED THE SCORES
found two kitties cuddling by the sea
I’m fucking sick of this whole “you’re young, so you’re fit, so you can definitely handle this all the exact same” idea that all schools seem to fucking share
I’m just laying here in tears because even laying down hurts like hell and I’ve walked the furthest I’ve ever walked in my fucking life today and we have to do it again
when the ache is going to be well on its way to being set in
in the sun.
