Creeping Menace -- Case Closed

Ah-hah.  You found out what kind of creeping vine was attacking your ivy.

Well, no.

What then?  How can the case be closed?

Well, remember the vine that was crawling over the wall and encroaching into our courtyard?  It looked like this.

                                     BEFORE

I went out to tell the gardner what progress we had made in identifying the dangerous intruder.  And guess what?  He had trimmerd the wall bare and stripped the grape, squash, alien vine out of the ivy.  It looked like this

                              AFTER

Case closed.

I still say it was Kudzu. If so, it will be back. Tammy

Looked like kurdzu to me too Chuck! Hope not though, that stuff eats houses...I know because it ate my granny's old house here in Ga.! (Japan trying to get even;-))

The wall looks much better now.     Glad that it was taken care of as it looked like and unkept courtyard.      mark

Doesn't even look like the same wall, Chuck! Although it looks cleaner, I found the vines, etc, much more interesting...

TOO LATE NOW until it starts to come over again!  Kate
