Ivy Attraction

Ivy flowers provide a really late source of food for insects. They are a feeding station of very understated creamy flower heads.

Wasps were patrolling from flower to flower.

Large bumble bees almost climbed through the greenery to find the next feeding station.

I climbed on the step ladders to be at eye level with this Ivy flower community. It was busy and noisy with a lot of buzzing .

I was surprised to find a red admiral visiting.

These flowers really provide a feeding source late into November , the ivy then provides ideal cover for hibernating insects . This Ivy is growing up a fence , it provides screening for us , it is a multitasking plant !
