I know it's a vine and it pretty much kills whatever it grows on long enough, but it's beautiful. The wysteria is blooming here, the azaleas, gardenias, dogwoods, and bradford pear trees. The spanish moss is hanging thick (and we even have mistletoe!) and everthing looks so lush. I got all irritated yesterday and was hating being here, but my goodness it's gorgeous. 75 degrees outside and I can sit on my porch and read a book with the birds singing and the sun shining.

Yeah, that's the extent of my internet mushiness today.

The only things blooming here are some crocusses, and then only a few. I hate you. ;)

A good german name. Same as a character from a recent series of gross out teenager movies - think along the lines of @sshole characters.
Now you got me, I grew out of those flicks years ago so I am totally stumped as to what you mean. Anyway, with all the Vandeveldes around you're bound to have some Bakra blood in you. :D

Back to paint's topic. I love wisteria, Chloe's vet used to have a huge vine growing outside the office.

And then it killed off what it was growing on and died itself, didn't it?

That's the funny thing about vines.

It was on a big old trellis - I think it just got too huge. Maybe it was eating into the building though......:eek:

Don't have a digicam anymore. If I get these pics developed soon, I'll scan 'em and post 'em up the ol' fashioned way.
