Rainy and cold in Iowa too...and I soooo need to plant my flowers. Have a great weekend!
Gorgeous house.When I think about coming home to the UK for good, I always picture sunny days. When I read about the UK, it's always grey. Funny that.
It's taking over.And would you like our hot, humid, sunny weather instead?
Rain, rain, rain... seems like that's all we've had now for almost two weeks! Sigh.Alex - YES! Please! I'm starting to go mouldy.
I love that plants can take over the world. Beautiful flower.CD
Wow how amazing!!! I don't know of any houses in Houston that look like that but it would be something really neat to see!I'm sorry it's yucky there, you weren't kidding they love to ruin your weekends! It will be hot here so I plan on taking a dip in the pool!
Just gorgeous flowers, that building makes quite a statement with them! Rainy and stormy here, too, today :/
It was suppose to rain here, but we have lovely sunshine instead. But the wind is blowing quite well. Love the flower.MasonThoughts in Progress
Great picture. I spy one of this historic blue markers on the wall. Wonder if someone historical lived there? How sad am I. heehee
It's rainy here in NY too. Not quite as cold. I swear Mother Nature has something stuck up her knickers lately with the weather. One minute it's blazing August hot, the next we're back in March storms. I love this picture and the fact there are little windows through the foliage. (Hugs)Indigo
I think it's rainy everywhere right now. lol. I'm in Chicago, and we are cold and gray with blustery winds. Rain is threatening again. That house looks so cool. What are those flowers? Don't think I've ever seen something quite like that. Ivy, sure, lots of times, but those are so thick!
I love this time of year. It's cold and rainy here too. Have a lovely weekend!
Rainy and cold in Leicester UK too. We used to have a wisteria that I could look at as I drank tea in bed and then it died, right down to the root. Looking at brick now. The one opposite you is spectacular.
I want to live in that house.
Flower power is right! I'm jealous. The snow just melted where I am. What is that vine? Gorgeous.
I looooove blue skies with a touch of cloud. Definite favorite. Happy weekend to you!
I think we may actually see blue sky here this weekend. Unfortunately, I'll be watching rugby all weekend instead of golfing. I'd love to look out my window and see that house - how cool!
Whoa. It's like "Little Shop of Horrors" is right across the street from you. Watch out for any unusual music coming from that building.Happy weekend!
There was one of those bushes in Trinity college yesterday, is it some kind of lilac bush? lovely house as well.
Wow, that sure is something else. It looks pretty cool, though! I wonder if the windows the plant is blocking are bedrooms or what? I think I'd miss the sunshine.Oh, wait, I forgot London doesn't see sunshine too often!
I'm embarrassed to say I don't actually know what kind of flower it is. Maybe lavender? It only blooms for about two weeks and the rest of the summer it's just a slightly sinister-looking vine thingy. E Elle - No music yet... I'll keep my ears perked, though!
Talli it is wisteria. Take a look here I posted ours on my news From Italy Blog :)http://lindyloumac.blogspot.com/2010/05/our-garden-in-april-nostri-giardino-in.html
Great photo! Yeah - we've got wet weather here too - although it's snow. *sigh* Not enough to stick around thankfully.
Ah! Wisteria... cool! Thanks LindyLou.Jemi - SNOW?!
Beautiful house and wisteria!!!But it's covering the windows.. then again at least it's organic and who knows how many birdies are nested in there??Have a great Saturday too - I'm off to watch Dr Who and to turn up the heating. I think Thursday was the end of Summer...Take carex
Oh no! Quickly, do a sun dance! I'll send some down from here because it's unusually sunny today :~)That wisteria is soo pretty :~) I like it when plants take over houses one bit at a time (mwhahahahaaa) But maybe that's just me?Have a wonderful saturday!
I met a writer from England a couple of weeks who was visiting LA. It was a beautiful day and a bunch of us were drinking wine in the backyard. He said he could never move here because the weather is too nice; he would feel guilty being inside writing all day.
Saves a bomb on curtain material.
Me thinks it's a day for a hot toddy! My friend Mariann (who lives in Portsmouth) can't stand winter...she and her hub went to Thailand for a couple of months...Mariann thinks she was a seashell in a previous life...maybe so! (And what a gorgeous house!)
Hot toddy! Sounds great.And yes, the good thing about the UK is it's usually nice writing weather (i.e., stay indoors and stay dry!).
What is that on the house? I've never seen that stuff before!Have a great weekend! It's rainy and cold here as well. Boo.
We've had sun yesterday and today - which is shocking seeing as this is Scotland.
Wow that is a cool house I would love to live there! Blog award for yousssss :)
I worry less about the planet when I see a plant like that; Wisteria, isn't it? Thing about Wisteria is, unmanaged, it becomes purple-flowering Kudzu.
I agree, the weather has been rubbish lately!! But wonderful to see the flowers and vines blooming and coming alive!
Is that a vine growing on the house? Wow. Double wow.HelenStraight From Hel
I love Wisteria vining over old homes or cabins. But, it does become quite pesky.
Wow! Like something from DAY OF THE TRIFFIDS. Always happier after having visited your blog, Roland
So pretty! Thank you!
Oh this was a surprise, I came by yesterday and there was no new post. I stopped by today to see wha tyour sweet treat was and to tell you that excerpt two is up on my blog and found this beautiful photo of whisteria!
I don't think I've ever seen a house more engulfed than that! I wonder what it's like to look out from the inside. :)
2 weeks of rain? How do you stand it?Glad you had a little bit of sunshine. Those are gorgeous flowers--they almost completely cover that building.Hope you get some sunshine soon! Like for many days! :)
Snowing and cold here on Friday and Saturday. Did someone say Spring! The flowers look wonderful. What a beautiful view you have.
Gorgeous house. indian classified site
