Kinda Creepy



If you were to come to my house today, you might see my snail vine creeping across my front porch. It is kinda hard to miss. The vines are actually planted on either side of the garage, and my plan/goal was to have them creep together over the garage. Mission accomplished.... periodically I even give them a haircut so we can get the cars in and out of the garage. What I didn't exactly expect was that they would also creep across the porch and maybe even threaten to take over the universe. And maybe, just maybe, I might love it.

We talk about your vines all the time and our jealousy of them!

This is a pretty general comment...you Sis. Dix, are one of the most AMAZING people in this world. Cliche? I think not! You are everything I want to be...everything...maybe minus the owner of creepy plants! I just love ya!

I was quite enjoying the sprawl of that plant while I was there... Even spent some time sitting on the front porch in the midst of it! :)

They are perfectly beautiful! I might have to borrow your green thumb someday so I can have perfectly beautiful green growing things too. :)

I wouldn't dare take a picture of any part of my yard right now. I have vines, but not of the variety that anyone would want. FIELD BINDWEED aka morning glory. I HATE that stuff. The other end grows in China (or perhaps Mondgolia). I'm headed out right now to do battle......

YOUR vines are beautiful!!!!

Your vines are lovely- they made me miss the jungle of passionfruit vines that were taking over the entire front of our house before we left! I LOVED the family photo shoot on Dixon Digest!! Such an amazingly adorable family. Keep reminding Holly how cute Jarom is- who knows, maybe someday they'll see eachother across some crowded BYU classroom...

I just found your blog. Hope you don't mind. Definitely creepy. You'd better watch out. :)

We have some ivy in front of our house. I cannot believe how determined those kinds of plants are to climb and attach themselves to everything!
