Ivy & Vine

Inspired by yesterday’s home and its beautiful courtyard design I started thinking about old world homes… I spent many happy childhood days in an uncle’s vine covered house and I will always remember the lush green bushes I tried climbing on a few times, and the charm it added to an already extravagant home in a child’s eyes (although my uncle sold it and I haven’t seen that house in decades, to this day ivy & vine stir up some happy memories). Memories aside, I believe vine covered walls look amazing on any style of architecture, whether it’s a modest cottage or a castle. The bad part is that they are not as healthy as they are pretty to look at (but then again what is, anyway?). They trap in moisture and over time can seriously damage the wall’s structure, create mold and other unpleasantries. With all that, I’d take the risk anyway! Wouldn’t you?  🙂
