Simply Beautiful – 16

The 16th post in this occasional series featuring photos of simply beautiful natural things. In this post I will share with you some photos of a plant we found at Attingham which was growing on another plant producing beautiful patterns and textures. This old ivy had been climbing up a tree for so many years that they have become inseparable.

A retired primary school head teacher, I now spend much of my time gardening in our quarter acre plot in rural Shropshire south of Shrewsbury. I share my garden with Jude my wife a newly retired teacher , eight assorted chickens and a plethora of wildlife. Jude does all the heavy work as I have a damaged spine and right leg. We also garden on an allotment nearby. We are interested in all things related to gardens, green issues and wildlife.

We have a relatively young variegated ivy growing on a last remaining bit of privett hedge. It is looking lovely: though some people say it is a rather tall ‘rude’ fertility symbol shape. We are just hoping it will have a few good years before the hedge dies.
