By now, if our climate was the way it once was, the bougainvillea near the front window would have died back from the frost. Instead, one of its vines taps at the window, calling to us inside, "Hiya! What ya doing? A gorgeous day, don't ya think?"
I suppose if the frost doesn't get the bougainvillea this year, I'll have to prune the vine away from the window. The castle look in the Sleeping Beauty story really is not a good idea to attempt.
