Three or More Tuesday – English Ivy

Happy Tuesday everybody!! Our wonderful hostess, Tam over at the Gypsy’s Corner is hosting "Three or More - Tuesday". If you would like to participate, drop in and visit her for all of the details.

____________________________________________

I am so excited that spring has finally started to peak its head out. We have had some absolutely beautiful days here this last week. All of the plants and flowers are really starting to bloom.

One of my very favorite things to do is work in the flower beds & potting plants. I can never get tired of doing it. It really is relaxing, and the end result to me is like art. Since all of the plants are really starting to look green again, I thought I would share one of my favorite types of plants with you. Now, I of course pretty much love all plants, but there is one that I absolutely adore. And, that is the English Ivy. Here are a few of the ones on my patio:








I hope you all have had a wonderful day. Do not forget to stop by Tam's & see what everyone is sharing today.

Happy Three Or More Tuesday!!!
I love ivy too but it doesn't love me, for some reason I have a very hard time keeping it alive. I particularly love your ivy in the boots - too cute.
Thank you for participating and have a wonderful evening,
Tam

wow, you have some lovely ivy plants! Love the boots planter; very sweet.

I haven't tried growing ivy in pots yet. It looks marvelous. The ivy here grows down over old stone walls behind the house, and that reminds me -- it's time to cut it back!

Your ivy is absolutely GORGEOUS! My mom can grow some ivy like nobody's business. I, on the other hand, seem to have a black thumb.
