Hi Bri,

Nope. Not yet.  

(... I was gonna suggest "Vulgarian" Ivy as an alternative to "English" 
Ivy ... but it's more of an inner city thing ... covering the walls as 
well as the ground.   Pretty much grows by itself ... but ya hafta keep 
an eye on it or the 'naughty' words and green viney version of pornogami

can cause your abode to lose it's "PG-13" rating.)

Hmmm ... wonder if David has the budget (or a small enough area) to 
consider Hostas? They do very well in Northern shade and come in a 
wide variety of sizes and colours ... Even chatreuse!  ;-)

Damn it's quiet around here ... the natives must be up to something!
