sweet ivy


There he was, nestled sweetly in a display of ivy topiaries at the garden shop last Friday, reminding me so vividly of the ones Mom grew when we were growing up in Florida. I remember a monkey, a turtle, an elephant and others - mossy animals that came to lush green life as the ivy filled in. They need water, sunshine and tender loving care to flourish. Just like we all do.
