The garden I was working in yesterday was surrounded by ivy - the buzzing was incredible I dont think I have seen so many bees and other insectstogetherK
They love it! And the ivy flowers just after one thinks pollination is over and all the bees and hoverflies are gone - gone to the ivy, it seems!Though . . . when I thought of the name for this photo, it was more that the ranks of blooms looked like rows of heads in a choral society performance.Lucy
Have a big patch just likeit, and Karen is so right. What a lift to see the sun again. Quick out with the camera Lucy.
The stuff grows and spreads hereso easily. Looks pretty on buildings, but I wonder about damage.
Lovely image! It does looks like a choir.
Surely something was hiding in there??
Hello Hermes.Back to dull today . . . mist and drizzle . . . autumn . . . fresh and lovely. (Oct. 10th)Hello Faye.Ivy does get its feet into mortar and cracks. This ivy is in a hedgerow but can be a nuisance there, smothering the other plants. None the less, I like it a lot.Hello Luis - it's the way choir members stand in rows but their heights differ and their heads bob about that makes them resemble ivy (and ivy them). I don't suppose many of them realise though!Lucy
Yes, Chuck, there will be things in there . . . wrens and robins probably!(Monsters too, I expect!)Lucy
