Very nice work! I played around with the generator by Thomas Luft times 
and again. His GUI takes some time to get used to. So it would be 
interesting to learn how you implemented it in POV. I cannot judge if 
you have put ivy around the stems of your trees. May be or not. In the 
case of yes, you should change for a winter scene and strip off the 
foliage of the trees.

As far as I can jugde Thomas approach, he covers surfaces only. But if I 
look at the garage next door, I see ivy building a thick layer with a 
height of more than a meter at least. But I think this will be hard to 
achieve, cause the ivy grows on itself.

Best regards
Michael
