|This is all Ivy !!!|
|Looks like its adding a new type of Ivy this year.|
|Here is more Winter Ivy.|
The birds will rest still in the tangled thickness of the vines. As I look up through the branches, I can actually see their little eyeballs staring back at me. They think I cannot see them. My favorite birds are the turtle doves. They often march out onto the outer branches in pairs and cuddle as they enjoy the warmth of the sun together.
|This is full bloom in the Summer|
The only Ivy you will see in this tree during the summer are the vines hanging to the ground as if they want to swallow the yard. We keep those cut back because personally, I think they would. Ha.
I love this tree because it houses many different species of birds and many squirrels. They sing songs and play. I keep them fed and enjoy watching them from my patio or kitchen Window.
We may have to cut the tree back this summer as it will probably reach to the patio and over our grill.
So, sorry Miss Ivy tree, the patio is mine!
