Day 19: Covered by ivy

The beautiful, ivy-covered building of the Raintree Lodge in Fort Kochi, Kerala. Isn’t it pretty?


For the July Photo-a-Day Challenge. The theme for today is ‘building’.

  1. This looks like it’s straight out of an old English novel. I’d definitely like to live there too, even if only for a few days’ time. I wonder one more thing, apart from keeping the insects at bay….what about mice?? They’re known to clamber up vines like these and enter through windows or ventilation shafts.

      Honestly speaking, the whole of Fort Kochi seems out of some old book. The place seems to be stuck in time. πŸ™‚

      Yikes! I hadn’t given much thought to the mice and other insects when I saw this building.

        Yes, I am aware ivy is used for decorating walls and houses, particularly in foreign countries. I have read about it in a lot of books. This is the first time I got to see it in person. πŸ™‚

        I wonder, like Priya, though – how do they keep the insects away?
