Sounds of the jungle!

The English Ivy which covers my neighbors back yard trees bloomed earlier in the summer and now the berries are ripe.

Hundreds of birds are flocking to the feast! They will be feasting from dusk to dawn for a few days until the berries are gone. Unfortunately, the seeds pass through their digestive and germinate all over the garden. It’s a constant battle to pull the seedlings to prevent a complete take over.

The patio and sidewalks will be stained purple, too, from the birds berry-stained droppings. It’s an interesting bird watching time but I think I would rather have no English Ivy in the neighborhood!

  1. Music to my ears! We have had the coldest March days in 150 yrs:-) I am so eager to hear birds singing every morning:-) the weeds seem better than the snow at this point-lol


  2. It sounds like a bird watcher’s paradise!


  3. Everything in stride, amigo. I have the same problem when the American Beauties put out berries. No hanging clothes on the line then. Blat-br-blat. Fortunately the garden hose takes care of the rest. Although the American Beauties are native and the English Ivy is not.
