Today’s post is inspired by Joey’s post on the summer heat and a question as to whether or not other people have vines growing up their porch.
Normally I try to rid my yard of all vines. I just don’t like those things because they cover everything so the precious flowers never see the light of day.
Vines have murdered trees all too often and those dead trees just might cause havoc if they fall on the house, car, flamingos, or little ones. Vines must go!
When we saw old houses with ivy covering the entire front wall, my mother would say that it was not a good thing. Vines on your house keep water in the wall and that grows mold. I have always tried to keep vines away from my home.
Yet, truth be told, I do have vines covering my porch. I just don’t call them vines. They are a vineyard. There were supposed to be red, green and concord grapes, but only the concord grapes have really flourished.
They have even sent out little vines that I have shared with others which makes me happy.
Let’s keep this tag going – do you have vines growing on your porch?
