V/Alphabe-Thursday

 Last year's tough old tendrils and this year's new growth

VINES: In spring, not just the weather is full of contrasts.


 Twisted VINE

This old grapevine reaches for the sky by winding it's way to the top.

 Black-eyed Susan VINE

The black-eyed Susan is a vine I am looking forward to seeing in a month or two but...

Taking over!

this is a vine I would not to see growing on my house!

I am linking to Jenny Matlock at Alphabe-Thursday HERE

Nice work, I am really glad to be 1 of several visitants on this awful site : D

Cool shots. I think spring is finally here in Toronto. My tree is getting green! Can't wait for summer. :)

Judy @ daily yarns said...

I wouldn't either, but it makes for a great photo tho.

Lois Evensen said...

The first vine bring thoughts of good wine. The vines on the antenna, well, I agree they are unwelcome. I have to go "find" my lamp post from beneath vines very soon!

Sandra said...

i love vines, and these are pretty. i even like the ones on top of the house, to look at but not on my house. it is vine hacking season here.

Lowell said...

Ah, I'm so sorry to see that you're all tied up in knots today! :-)

Leora said...

Your top photo is so sculptural. The black eyed susan vine does not look like what I think of as black eyed susan - beautiful flower.

John "By Stargoose And Hanglands" said...

Wonder what kind of TV reception they get on that!

Rose said...

Love that first shot...like you I would not be letting the vine grow on my house.

TexWisGirl said...

these are great. i love the tendrils in the first shot.

Kathy said...

I too love flowering vines but they can be so invasive. It's a constant job keeping them in tow.

Giga said...

Chyba trochę za wysokie sobie pozwoliła rosnąć. Pozdrawiam.
Probably a little too high let yourself grow. Yours.

LindyLouMac in Italy said...

It is so good to see the growth emerging on the grapevines.

RedPat said...

Cool post EG!

Crafty Gardener said...

I love the twisted vine photo, must rush out and take some like that of my grape vines. :)

Craver Vii said...

Crikey, that is one aggressive vine!

jabblog said...

I love to see twisted vines and new growth appearing but that last one is too powerful!

Stephanie said...

Great idea with the alphabet theme.

A Garden of Threads said...

Great shots. I would not like that vine on my house either.

Mary said...

Vines are so tenacious! I don't envy whoever has to climb your roof to take down your vine :)

Michelle said...

I really like that last picture, but that vine has really taken over!

Mumsy¸.¤ª“˜¨ said...

I love your twisted vine. It looks like a rope almost. Beautiful photos of different vines!

Daniel LaFrance said...

That chimney is having a bad hair day!

Vicki/Jake said...

I love clinging vines...unless they're human:)

Esther Joy said...

I love the "black eyed Susan" vine. My daughter got me one that looked something like that one year for my birthday.

George said...

All of your photos are wonderful, but I really like the picture of the twisted grape vine. The texture and detail are wonderful.

VBR said...

gorgeous photos, i especially like the close up of the grape vine. my husband has been doing battle with some ivy vines that are taking over one of our trees. to date, it is a draw, neither is winning, but as the tree is still thriving, at least we are making inroads to saving it.

Sue said...

I love any kind of clinging vine that is not destructive. They look so beautiful to me.

=)

Leovi said...

Yes, really delicious compositions with vines, lovely colors.

Rocky Mountain Woman said...

Lovely v post! I love your take on the world...

Susan said...

Goodness, that vine is gonna do damage if it hasn't already. I love your photos!

Lmkazmierczak said...

Your shot of the top shoot is my fave♫♪

Pondside said...

Great idea for 'V'. I think I'd be moving out of the house with the vine from Mars....too spooky.

edenhills said...

I just love the old tendrils on the grape vines. These are great shots!

La Principessa Errante said...

What wonderful photos, the vine shots are really stunning. The taking over shot however, no that is scary :-).

bluegrassnotes said...

Nice take on V!

Marie said...

Wonderful vine photos! I love that black-eyed susan vine. I've seen that before.

Emille said...

Love your firs pic of vines! I agree, I hope that would never happen on my house either!

Lola said...

Thanks for stopping by and look forward to *seeing* you again!

Great post – so apt.

Have a great weekend too.

Cheryl D. said...

I would not want to take the vines off that antennae!

Splendid Little Stars said...

Yikes to the (probably not so) dead vines crawling all over the house!
Vine is a great V word and you got some great shots!

Annesphamily said...

Great post! I am not a viney kinda gal! We lived in a house that had grape vines. Pretty in bloom, not so much in the winter time!

Viola said...

Oh my... I have never seen anything like that!! =O
