Strangled Light.

Could that be wisteria or bitter sweet... both left free to roam will vine around anything and bring it down! Great photo that illustrates their hold on nature and anything else in their reach. Carol

It is the very wisteria that this blog is named after. It has run wild for 20 years and has swallowed the old green house. In the summer cow parsley grows beneath it. It's the wild child of Tumbledown, unkempt and beautiful.

RO :o)

I love the detail and shapes of the tangle.

I used to have a wisteria vine in my previous house, it was rather indestructible, indeed it tended to lift or break whatever arbor it was growing on.

Wow, that is not letting go! Makes you think about the power of nature and how we have to work so hard to keep it in check. What would the world be like without pruners!!!

Such beauty to be found in tenacity. It reminds me of the vines I made into swings as a child... Thank you!

I love twisty old vines - they have so much character.

Of course! Sometimes we do not see what is right in front of us. I should not compare Bitter Sweet to Wisteria anyway . . . as I grow Wisteria and tear out Bitter every chance I get. Some of my most beautiful blooms are from the stranglers. I sure did not know they could take over so, when I planted my little tree wisterias that have the tendency to return to vine and send out hundreds of miles long shoots. We just have to stay in touch is all. I love you header photo it is so striking. Gorgeous kitty. Carol

The title would be good as a stand-alone post.
