solar dryer

This is the neighbor’s solar clothes dryer. In the last sew months it has become so completely overgrown by grape vines that it has virtually disappeared. If you can’t spot it in the picture, the yellow arrows point to the cross-tees at either end and the curved yellow is where the sagging clotheslines are.

Still hard to believe that there is a solar clothes dryer in there. If you were standing facing it as the camera is and then turned to your left you would se the very large garage in the backyard. Here is a picture of the garage below.

Some day this too will probably disappear under the grapevines. Almost like something out of a science fiction movie. Perhaps we should call it Attack of the Killer Grape Vines. Sound far fetched? Have you ever heard of or seen the movie Attack of the Killer Tomatoes about tomato plants attacking people. Now that is stranger than Attack of the Killer Grapevines. How about the television series about what would happen if man were to disappear. In the movie they had the plants growing all over the buildings much like my neighbors garage. It will be a nightmarish job for him to clear all of these vines away if he ever decides to do it. Have a nice day and keep your plants trimmed back. Lew

We let our stuff grow. We also have a bird in a bag. A small wren made a home in the peat bag. Some eggs were layed and she flies in and out of the bag when she wants. I haven't seen turtle seen the one encouter we had underneath the South bridge. Nature loves to grow and maybe all that growth protects something important. I hope you catch the shuttle flight tomorrow morning.
