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.

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 here
so easily. Looks pretty on buildings, but I wonder about damage.

Luis Gomez said...

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!

Yes, Chuck, there will be things in there . . . wrens and robins probably!

(Monsters too, I expect!)
