  4. Strange how the ivy is a sign of the decay it covers - and also a sign of new life!

  9. Excellent post, Karl. I love the way the old stone building peeks through the green...as if to say, "Hey, I'm still here and hanging on!"

  18. I realise that ivy is very destructive to walls and buildings ... but it is sooo attractive when it climbs and when it hangs. I agree with Dina that there is no such thing as an ugly stone wall. This is very beautiful in my eyes.

    Thank you for your contribution to our Theme Day.

  21. Even though its probably the ivy that's causing the decay, it always looks so fantastic covering a wall. Beautiful images Katl.
