    wow, what a beautiful plant.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Virginia Creeper can cause a rash and itching on some people. In the South it is considered a weed.

    That is beautiful! I would love to have a vine growing on my house but I suppose the cows wouldn't leave it alone.

    Never regret growing older, its a privilege denied to many.

    It is gorgeous but don't you worry about the plant damaging your home?
    If you always do, what you have always done, The results never change. Change is the wings you give yourself.

    Very beautiful. But this is one plant some people can be allergic to. I am one of them. Its just like getting in to poison ivy for me. So be careful of this vine.

    It is beautiful but not innocent. It will climb anywhere and everywhere. It is a bad pest.

    We make sure it is well pruned each year. Has never given us any cause for concern and yes it looks absolutely beautiful from that garden room.

    Being a Master Gardener, I just love your plant and never saw a red Virginia Creeper. Here in SC, it's considered a weed that can grow like wild fire, so we just pull it out of the flower beds, garden, and off the fences!!
    Yours is special! Beauty comes in many ways. Thanks for sharing.
