Lens-Artist Challenge – A Tangling Growth

An unusual guest made a very surprise appearance in my home this past June!

From my neighborhood’s garden, a creeper decided to extend its presence in my home as well.


So a new branch made its way into my home via front cemented grill, surprising me up completely  because this looked so cute and amazing.

Next day, it extended up a little more inside my home, so I looped it into the next block of the grill.


As days passed on, it extended out further into my home. Looking at it was certainly a treat for my tired mind as this tiny marvel of nature reminded me about life’s delicacy.


New leaves kept popping out it on daily basis and I made sure to provide it enough room to grow out further by looping the very tip into the next block of my cemented grill.


After a week or so, it looked like this ↓ and I was quite astonished.


But unfortunately, my neighbors felt the opposite way and they trimmed down the creeper from their home to mere a feet or two.

Sadly, I found out about this the next morning one day as neighbors probably trimmed that creeper the previous night.

I sometimes recall about this unusual guest, which tangled inside my home and reminded me about the many ways of life’s growth.

I also think what if it was allowed to grow more. That would certainly be something majestic!

    Oh well Hammad, at least you were able to enjoy it for a few days. And how persistent it was!!

      You are right, Tina. Every time I looked at it during those days, my heart filled with nothing but happiness.

    This is a great story of how nature creeps into our lives without our own help. Maybe your home would have turned into an overgrown castle like in the Sleeping Beauty! Sorry your neighbour trimmed it down though.

      Turning my home into a castle would have been a nice thing and I may have shared it equally with my neighbor 😁
      Thank you so much for liking this, Ann-Christine. I wish you a wonderful weekend 🙂
