The Force of Nature

While I was in England I was fortunate enough to stay in a lovely, very old house in the country. The house has lived in this spot for a long time, but I am afraid that nature has decided to reclaim the space for its own.
I am not sure if you can see from the next picture, but the Virginia Creeper is creeping in on the house...
In all the rooms, the windows were just unable to hold back the unrelenting advance of this intrepid plant. Yikes. Don't mess with Mother Nature.

  1. I spent 3 days pulling a Virginia Creeper off our garage this summer. What a nightmare. And sure enough it's creeping back again! I think we're just going to pull down the whole garage. (o.k. I admit that's not really because of the Virginia Creeper)
