It looks more like 'Engulf and Devour'.

In, in, it wants in. When we lived in a 350 yr old cottage in England, plants grew in between the dining room floorboards and ivy crept in around the windowsills.

I think it's just a camera hog. Take my picture, pleeeeeese!

Golly, it is gorgeous to look at, but it is sooo insidious. Whether out or in ... OUT with it!!

Maybe it is climbing only to reach the sunlight.

Sharon said...

I fear it is trying to get in.

Why does something that looks so terrific sometimes create structural damage to walls? I like the lines in your photo.

Definitely in Brattcatt, I know it grows like crazy, but I have to say I love it! We have it in the garden and I often wonder if we left for a few years would we come home and find the house totally covered..not willing to find out!!

On your picture, it seems simply to try to reach the sun spot!But usually, ivy is curious and wants to know what's going on inside..

In. I often think it's trying to blanket a house and infiltrate its interior corners as well, like that one pretty house on the way to the park.

In Florida, left untouched, that house would be covered in ivy in a year and lost to civilization forever!

Get out! Very lovely picture!

I depends on which cat you're talking about.
