In past years L. has tried to get this vine to grow up and hide the bricks.
He used stakes, twisty ties and the vine just stayed near the ground.
This year he did nothing.
And look at that - climbing up over the shutter!
There is also a bit wending its way over the porch.
One roofer who came to see if we needed a roof
asked if it was poison ivy.
I certainly hope not.
