  1. That's much prettier ivy than the dark clingy strangler ivy we have here. I swear it could choke small children. But not really...

  4. I love ivy-covered facades, though they say that ivy damages buildings, but hey, it's pretty.

  7. I love ivy-covered buildings (but hubby, ever practical, says it ruins the brickwork - pout). Our glen is covered in the stuff, so I can at least enjoy it at a distance! Beautiful shot.

  10. And a beautiful ivy it is. We had ivy crawling up our house in east Ocala...but it really messed up the paint so we'd have to pull it off -- what a terrible job.

    Don't have to worry about that anymore! Yahoo!

    Due to strong storms we lost the Internet yesterday afternoon so I'm trying to catch up now. Hope all is well with you!

  14. Love the ivy... especially since I don't have to tame it! It climbs trees and kills them here.

  15. I so love ivy. My back wall (we're in a townhouse) used to be totally covered in it. But after a few years it starts getting into trouble so we pulled it down and began again. We're in the third begin-again now. Love this shot.

  16. Great shot and that building is a pleasure to to look at in the built up city and no doubt to look out of too!

  17. I love ivy on buildings. As I was on my way to Fenway last night (Yay Sox! Yeah, I know... you abhor baseball. Heathen!) I passed by a great old parking garage that is just festooned with ivy, so much so that nobody would know it was a garage without the sign next to it saying so. I thought how marvelous it was to allow your building to become so green and lovely despite it possibly costing you a patron or two.

  19. Wow! It definitely will take over a building in a heart beat.

  20. Whoa! That's crazy! But it totally makes me want to get at eye level where the ivy-covered and non-ivy-covered meet.

  21. The ivy probably helps absorb the heat in the summer. hmmm... The window appears to have been"darylized"...
