What Was, Was Good

Walking around Waterbury before the Christmas Eve service at St. John's, I came across these vines on a building housing a law firm on Church Street. The vines seemed so graceful, so sensuous, to me. I am glad it was let be through the warm weather. Nature will have her place. I love it.

  1. Good Morning Sandy. I love nature too. You have captured the spirit of nature hanging on during the cold season in these very artistic shots.

  8. Yes, nature will reclaim her own. There's a building a block over from my office with very similar growth clinging to it.

    But ivy... I'm ambivalent about that stuff. It's one of those things you don't want to plant unless you really really mean it! Because it absolutely will take over everything in its path. It's relentless, indefatigable, and impossible to get rid of.

  11. I like them also and did a post awhile back on a similar bunch. To me, they represent life resting because in the spring, they come back, all new!

  13. Almost monotone - I love them... They look rather "quiet".

    Beautiful at any time of year. This reminds me of something that grows here called Creeping Fig ... my neighbor had it on her house until it started growing INSIDE too. Then she had it removed and the house painted.
    Hugs and blessings,

    Hmmm ... trying to comment again after getting a Blogger error. This plant reminds me of something called 'Creeping Fig' that grows here. My neighbor had it growing on the outside of her house until it started growing INSIDE too. She had it removed and repainted the house.
    Hugs and blessings,

  17. It served like an accent to the plain white building walls

  18. I have vines growing up the back of my house and I'm always torn between removing them because of the damage they do, and leaving them because they're so beautiful. I've removed them a couple of times now.. but they persist. And I let them for a while. I love that first shot in particular.

  19. Nature is painting for us,
    day after day,
    pictures of infinite beauty
    if only we have the eyes to see them.
    - John Ruskin

    Great pictures!!
