IVY HOUSES - CASAS VERDEJANTES











I always had a special attraction for homes and buildings covered with ivy. Here some pictures that convey to me a sense of beauty and freshness.

  4. I love the way they look, but I know from experience that trimming it off the windows is very time-consuming!

  5. Oh I adore them too, especially those stone and brick houses/buildings covered with ivy.

  6. Sonia, de fato parece que nos conhecemos faz tempo!! Não sei se o blog permite isso, pois tem muita coisa acumulada sobre cada pessoa para lermos, se foi o fato de termos na Bel um ponto comum há muito tempo, mas acho de verdade que foi a energia, nossas sensibilidades que bateram.

    Achei o máximo as fotos das "casas verdes"! Atualmente moro em uma aqui em campinas. Está tomada, paredes e telhado, pela Era Canadense... Adoro!

    Bj grande.

  9. Such lovely images,
    they evoke vivid memories of our home in Washington, DC, which was covered by ivy. I miss it dearly!

  12. I agree, the houses with ivy climbing up the walls look wonderful, but I am very happy that there is NO ivy on my house!

  13. Like you, Sonia...I love the way Ivy looks climbing up the sides of homes and buildings...I LOVE those first two pictures, in particular...But, ALL of them are Wonderful!
    The pnly bad thing about Ivy here in Los Angeles--And maybe everywhere---the Rats live in it...OY! (lol)

  16. Hello Sonia!
    About your question, those cranes in my photo are for the construction of a new large road (a sort of highway) in Turin and the skyscraper is the RAI (Radio-Television Broadcasting) building.
    Have a very nice day!

  20. Yes, there is something elegant and lovely about ivy-covered buildings.
    A visual treat.
    Though some people feel it is bad for the structure itself.

    Bjo e bom fim de semana prolongado.

  22. Eu gostaria muito de ver essas imagens de perto! Aqui na minha rua tem dois muros com hera, mas não são nada, perto destas casas. Bom fim de semana! Beijus

  23. Hello Sonia !
    I like the greenry on houses but I say to myself it will be full of beasts.Over here at this time, a lot of bif spiders come into homes.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Sonia, nice to read about the name of your blog "LEAVES OF GRASS". Thanks!
    Have a great weekend!

  25. Virginia creeper is less invasive than ivy. Ivy has to be cut regularly if we don't want it to get into the tiniest craks of houses...
    The beautiful houses you are showing fit with the families shown a few days ago on your blog... lol

  26. Adoro cobertura de muros e paredes com hera! Nem precisava dizer!!!

  27. I finally had a chance to post my photo. Thanks for the inspiration. ;-)
