Tonight I happened to look up at my kitchen ceiling, something I obviously don't do often enough.
That is the pink trumpet vine (Podranea ricasoliana) making its way into the house through the exhaust fan. I've mentioned before what a weed it is, and that it would pull down the house if left to itself. In the last year I've had it growing through a window, through an aircon unit, and now this. I will have to ask someone to go up into the ceiling and deal with this bit; I am no good at climbing ladders.

  1. I laughed out loud at this, both at the vine and your hesitance to go up in to the roof cavity. I have to climb up into our ceiling several times a year to hand out free rodent bait and later to remove those who ate of it.
