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!
