Curtain of Vines

A green curtain covers one side of our city hall in the summer.

The vines are morning glories and bitter melon plants! I think they were planted sometine in June. It's amazing how fast they grow. It's a nice natural curtain!

That leaf curtain would keep the place so cool. It adds to the beauty too. Nice pictures.

Love the bamboo.

Fantastic! Hope this curtain doesn't attract bugs, though.

do they dry up in Winter? The curtain certainly makes it very cool.

I love it when plants climb buildings like that, it adds a certain charm.

Thank you for the comments, everyone! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend :D

Tall Gary, I thought you'd like the bamboo!

Ann, I think they take it down when the summer is over.

EG, yup! They really grow fast, especially the bitter melon plant!

Aragesque, I don't know how common it is...but I think it's part of a eco program. Something about less direct sunlight through the window meaning less need to use the A/C :D

Very nice! I like the way the vines frame the window.
