Gotland: Ivy

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!
