Dagnabbit, it's wisteria

I agree about ivy and its removal. I spent years picking its roots out of mortar between bricks at my last house. But I think this is wisteria, which I have at my current house.

Same difference for work, though. The wisteria needs trimming every two days in the summer or it'd take over. I read somewhere that the largest plant on earth is a single wisteria bush that covers 7,000 acres. I believe it.

Dang Ivy

I always enjoyed the look of ivy growing up a building. Then I offered to help a friend remove it from his house. What a mess the ivy made of the siding, etc. It burrowed into every nook and cranny to hold itself to the building.

I WANT IT !

What an incredibly beautiful home; I would LOVE to own something like this, but at today's prices, not gonna happen! Since it survived until at least 2011, it must have been really well built. They just don't make them like that any more.

I'll take it!

especially at 1930s' prices.

Somebody Must Have Bought It

It's still there after all these years, at least it was when Mr. Google drove by in 2011.
