It’s pretty. Ivy is easy to grow. I often see it neighborhood.
thanks – ivy is such a hardy plant and it looks so nice.
I like the peaceful colour palette. Very pretty. We grow ivy up one of the walls here for the birds.
thanks – it is nice. it gets chopped back once in a while but comes back no problem – the birds simply love it – hiding in it, eating the berries, twittering up a storm – fun to see every year.
I have a varigated ivy growing in a corner of the garden where it’s too shady for anything else to grow, the ivy seems to like it, and it adds a nice splash of colour.
Nice picture. 🙂
thanks Sallyann – that’s nice – it is a great hardy plant for those spots, and it always looks so green. 🙂
The color tones, shapes and textures all combine to make a pleasing overall image, Sheila.
thanks Wayne – the grey and green are a nice combo.
I never noticed the patterns on ivy leaves, until now – how cool!
