Climbing Vines

I was admiring the ivy plant which is covering the facade of the Carnavalet Museum 
in the heart of Le Marais, the fashionable right bank district of Paris.

There's always something so incredibly romantic about climbing vines on an old wall, yes?
I've seen a lot of ivy cultivars and many of them do turn reddish in the colder months,
but this particular ivy is really turning to such a vibrant red! 

Can you see the courtyard garden? 
The classic parterre design is absolutely gorgeous
and certainly look its best when viewed from above!
Hope you're enjoying my Paris posts so far...
I still have about another week here everyone!
Greetings from Paris

Are we enjoying your post? Let me think about that a minute........YES! Dare you ask. Love the ivy. I sometimes can not make up my mind if I like it on classic old buildings and homes for it covers up the architecture, but is also makes it look forgotten and mysterious which I love. The red is very vibrant, thanks for sharing as always Lenore!!!

Paris just takes your breath away with its beauty, doesn't it? I always felt I had to dress up and look my best when I was there - just for walking around the streets! This really is lovely - I'm very much enjoying your Paris posts!
