    What I had written before, was basically growing a mix of wisteria, trumpet vine, climbing roses, jasmine and such, and adding morning glory, moon flowers and nasturtium seeds each year, to climb up the others. A riot of colour and shapes which will

    I would put shutters on your windows. And I think your walkway is just fine
