oh wow i am FIRST!!!!!!! i love ivys that cover buildings ... even kudzu has its place it is pretty even though it kills everything it grows on...
I love Ivy on buildings too! Well, as long as it doesn't grow on my house at least.
I'm green with Ivy. xo
Funny how it knows enough not to cover the windows
Ivy can be a real nuisance, but isn't it beautiful.
Like Jeff Goldblum said in Jurassic Park "Life will find a way."
That's beautifully creepy :)Forest Warbler
Interesting! The windows looks like wreaths.<><
It's pretty. But not on my wall!
I know ivy can be a nuisance, but I love the look of it climbing on buildings like that. Great shot.
Great photo although I personally have a love/hate relationship with ivy. It's beautiful, no matter where it grows and it grows under the most dreadful conditions. But it also kills trees and can do some serious damage to wooden structures. For some reason, when mentioning ivy, I always recall that wonderful old TV show with Ronald Coleman when he was a college profeessor with ivy on his own home and, of course, the college. And for sure, I can't remember the name of the show but that Coleman was one hottie!
I can hear the mortar between the bricks surrendering to the ivy. So pretty, but so destructive.
In the Big Apple, I'll bet you are grateful for the green!!!V
I love ivy! And I love Cloudia's and Judi's comments, too! :-)
The ivy is pretty, but my favorite is the decorative woodwork in the lower part of the picture. Also, I spy your signature, very cleverly hidden.
Did you know there's an old Irish superstition that if you have English ivy growing on your house you'll have bad luck? And if someone gives an English ivy plant to you, baaaad!
Yes, ivy has a way of doing that doesn't it???
once again your perspective adds so much to the shotI love how the brick building looks pinkish
what is it about ivy on old buildings! - hate it in our woods - kills the trees xxo
I love ivy covered buildings but apparently it can cause havoc with the brickwork! :0
Beautiful building...maybe it should apply to be a college!Sandi
Cloudia is so cute, isn't she?Although we all know how pretty ivy looks, it's devastating and will ruin a building. I like it on brick, but unless you really maintain it (which is almost impossible), it will get into the windows and begin pulling things apart. Ivy is strong!
I love that look. I have a fair amount of ivy on my house that I probably should pull back soon but I love the way it looks.
Nature will go where she pleases. This is nifty.
Shades of summer.. thanks for that. :)
I love ivy on buildings. I know it does damage, but to me it's so pretty it doesn't matter. (And I've never had to fix the damage.)
I think ivy is so pretty. Many people tell me they hate it though. I just love how it creeps and crawls and covers... : )
I love ivy.
I like ivy covered buildings, but they say it loosens the brickwork. I planted ivy on a slopping rocky part of my yard about 7 years ago. At first I had my doubts that it would make it....grass never would grow there. But it slowly but surely filled in the space and now it is over 10 feet up on a tree that grows nearby.
