In early March I posted pictures of a weird red plant growing in the back yard, some extremely green moss growing near it (it was St. Patrick’s Day, soooo predictable!), and then some new spring growth on a whole bunch of plants, where the new growth is a lighter shade of green than the existing leaves.
Now the new ivy leaves are growing like crazy along the fence between our house and the neighbors.
The difference in shades of green is very stark on this ivy, the older leaves being a dark green and the new leaves being much lighter and more yellow.
In a month it will all be the same. But for now it’s very pretty, varied, and it makes a great hiding place and home for hummingbirds and lizards.
