Ivy Love.

Ivy has a magic about it that can make something hard look soft and wild, but inviting all at the same time.  Ivy can stay green all year and
to see something look full of life in the freezing cold winter makes me happy. 
How does the ivy not freeze?
I asked this question once to a horticulturalist and he could not give me an answer.
Ivy is like a patina, only time can make it grow onto something, giving it a beauty with age.
Enjoy, Heidi

This is fig ivy, if I'm not mistaken, it does ok in freezing winters, at least Texas winters.

Made me laugh

This is what happens when you combine a Saturday Night Live skit with Mumford and Sons.
I promise you that for 5:15 minutes you'll have a smile on your face.
Mumford and Sons is AWESOME, I love their work and authentic talent. 
These guys in the video might look familiar if you watch SNL & The Hangover.
I love the part when they are in the boat and one guy has an accordion even though
there isn't an accordion playing in the song.
Enjoy, Heidi
