my vine

i live in an in-law cottage in the back yard of a house in oakland. the people in the main house share the yard with me, and it's overgrown and lush and verdant and thriving. how thriving is it? check out this awesome vine that is growing into my house from the edge of a windowsill.

here it is closeup. ignore all the yucky stuff up there...i can't see that high without standing on a chair, so it doesn't exist.

i thought maybe i should remove the vine but it is kind of beautiful, when you think about it. also, it's faring much better than my houseplants ever do:
