Standard Wisteria is Beautiful, but ...

This pink wisteria was planted with the intention of it one day covering a gazebo that we thought would be built here to take advantage of the view.  Clive's father Paul Poolman loved this view and painted several watercolours from this position.

But plans change and we no longer intend building a gazebo here. The Wisteria Walk, above The Eastern Terace, was another favourite spot for Paul, the views are more spectacular and we have recently dedicated The Walk to Paul's memory. 

Without a gazebo to clim over, this lone wisteria is marooned.  Over the years it has grown into a rather beautiful standard specimen, but this is not the position for a standard plant.  So next winter we will move it to a more appropriate spot. The question is "Where?"
