This blog is where you will find the ideas that I am currently working on. They all eventually find their way to my pattern site - see link at the left side of page.
I've never seen anything like it!
Not hugging it - probably a strangler vine. They are parasites which latch onto established trees in the rainforests and if left for long enough, eventually the tree inside the strangler vine will die.Or maybe they're called strangler figs.
We have strangler figs here too, that eventually swallow up the original tree. Interesting!
Is it wisteria?
You get the prize, Martha. Spot on.
