I have just come home from a vacation week on Gotland in the south of Sweden. It has a totally different climate from ours here in the north!
Above is my ivy bonsai. Not very big!
Ivy is a sign plant of Gotland. My little specimen, kept indoors all year, never has any flowers but this week I got to see the ivy flowers - or at least flower buds:
Ivy was growing over all kinds of trees, walls, houses and ruins:
Here it is on a dead spruce.
- Here on a pine, the pine's branches sticking out.
It makes a really fascinating "weave" around trunks and on whatever it is growing over!
