    Those are gorgeous ! ! I have never seen a vine like that before, at least I don't remember seeing one. What are they called, @Jeff Tracy ? Do they come back each year or do you have to plant them over and over?
    The little bit of purple I can see down in the corner looks like part of. Morning Glory blossom.

    I was wondering what it is, too. It's very pretty. I think @Jeff Tracy lives in England so we may may have them here.

    I don't know if we can allow people from England here. All those extra vowels will eat up our bandwidth. :)

    They do use rather an excessive amount of vowels, don't they? :D

    Dearest Ken we English are not the worst, In Galician, you can make a nice little phrase all in vowels:

    Eu ía ao Eo (Eo is a river). And with it's additional affirmative:
    Eu ía ao Eo, ao Eo ía eu.

    In Estonian :
    Õe uue aia au ei (h)üia äia õue. = The glory of sister's new fence wouldn't shout into the backyard of her father-in-law.

    In Finnish:

    ei = no
    = night (y pronounced as ü in German or u in French)
    aie = intention
    auo = open (imperative or negative form of the verb to open)
    oio = straighten (imperative or negative form of the verb to straighten)
    ui = swim (imperative or negative form of the verb to swim)
    Ii = a place in northern Finland
    Io-aie ei ui: EU ei aio, Ii Oy ei oio = The intention concerning (to explore) the Jupiter moon Io is sinking: European Union doesn't intend (to do it), the Ii company doesn't straighten (the misconception about the project).

    In catalan: a l'ou hi ha ouaires. (There are egg-sellers inside the egg).

    A well known Swedish example from a story by the poet and writer Gustaf Fröding is the dialectal Å i åa ä e ö.
    "and in the creek, there's an island"

    Bulgarian ;
    ae - come on!
    ei - hey
    ewa - come
    eia - there she is
    i - and
    e - is
    u - in a place
    a - but

    Italian;
    cuoiaio;
    'leather works shop'.

    So am I unconditionally allowed to stay ?
