That is gorgeous. I alwys wished vines would grow up our house like that. Great photo! ~Sarah

That's absolutely stunning. Why does it take an English expat to see our country in all it's glory? :-)

Found your blog through Argentum Vulgaris (which I was attracted to because of the amusing Latin name). You've got a new follower. My site is at http://creditcrunchcareerchange.blogspot.com, if you could check it out and let me know what I could do to improve it, I'd be grateful - thanks!

I love ivy covered buildings, although I know it is damaging to brickwork, it still says "England" to me....
I wonder who has the job of keeping it cut away from all those windows ...hmmm.

There is something special about ivy on a building, isn't there?
Afternoon Tea Break, thanks for the compliment but it's worse than you think--Frances took the photo so it took a foreigner!

It was still a great photo anyway :-)
