Taking control


I've smiled much of the summer over the audacity of this little creeper,


And the boldness of these grasses.

  1. And before too long there will be drifts at the side of the road and smears of wind blown snow over the faces of those signs. Thank goodness for photos we can look back on and gain hope from.

  2. Sometimes makes you think that if you stand still next to the morning glory for too long, you could have a blossom or two wrapped around your head.

  3. I know from experience that grass and weeds will grow anywhere. Given half a chance, they would take over the planet.

  4. it took no time at all for a little legume wild vine whose flowers are nearly invisible to completely cover the front fence of the new shop once we started taking care of the property. I do need to tackle it but not before the weather cools off some.

  5. Here we would be worried about fire hazards with how dry it has been, but it looks so luciously green there!

  6. Almost a case of greenery rushes in where angels fear to tread. I expect a man from some Highways organisation will come along one day soon with a scythe.

  7. I have creepers on my house. I have to pull them off so they don't become heavy enough to cause damage.

  8. So many plants have 'world domination' tendencies and aims. And I love to see them.

  9. I smiled seeing what looks like Virginia Creeper in the first photo... then looked at the 2nd photo and... uh oh... sure looks like phragmites to me... a horrible invasive species that takes over and snuffs out the "good stuff". Sure hope I'm wrong. I'm finally back in "computer" land... trying to catch up on my favorite blogs. I've sure missed a lot this summer... hope I have time to backtrack and see what Hamilton and Emily are up to... and you, of course.

  11. Here's to trying to overcome being on the bottom, eh?

  12. If that creeper grew at the speed limit you wouldn't see the sign at all on your way back. Probably not much of the road either.

  13. Ahh -- my friends the weeds -- such scalawags with their boldness -- they fight against the odds to keep our planet green. -- barbara

  14. It gives you an idea of how fast nature would take over if we were to disappear.

  15. I second what Alain said! Nature is a powerful force.

  16. I often think about what Alain commented when we come home from either our cabin or our beach house, the garden has had at the very least a week of uncontrolled growth. Any longer and the weeds and creepers would cover it up.
