Lovely Yellow



This is a photo of some lovely green ivy that is peeping through a hedge in the garden.
I think that the flowers are just beautiful and have picked lots of this greenery to add to my vases to fill them out.

The ivy is taking over the hedge
but as it looks so pretty I think I will leave it there.

This is just lovely! I would leave it there too.

Desiree said...

This is a most unusual (to me, at least!) ivy. Our leaves are quite different from yours and we don't get flowers. What a pretty variety and I can quite understand your wanting to use sprays in your flower arrangements. Lovely!

Claudia Moser said...

It looks so pretty indeed :)

Dawn said...

Yes...leave it! A smiley beauty to brighten your day:)
Love those captures of it!

Kentish Keg-Meg said...

Ellie said...

You know I've seen this and wondered what it was!! Now I know, thank you :))
I'm learning something everyday through blogs - it's great lol.
Your picture is lovely and yellow is one of my favourite colours.

Hi Fiona. Oh, yes, definitely leave it - it looks so pretty. Like Desiree, I have never seen flowers on ivy before. Lovely shots for us to look at today.

I LOVE ivy. But those flowers are so sweet and pretty. Yellow always reminds me of sunshine. Wonderful photos. Take care.

Sush said...

Hi again Fiona,
Thought I'd come over with a response to your reply to me. Phew did you understand that!!!
Housework? What housework!!!! lol
I've got a funny feeling we may hava a hard winter this year (again) after all the mild weather we have been having.
And my hair is ok - thank you for asking :)) I've actually had people saying it looks good - which is no bad thing is it?
Have a good week Fiona,
Ellie

Very pretty. I do that in my yard and garden too- if something looks good to me, even if I didn't plan it and it may have to be dealt with later, I leave it. Good choice! Hope you have a wonderful day!
