Also known as my back yard. This picture was taken a couple of weeks ago already, and the tree is now even more verdant and jungle-y than you see here. But it's so delightful sitting under it and looking up into the leafy branches.
Beneath the tree, a relentless sea of ivy flows down the slope.
The ivy is full of critters. Does a snail count as a critter? I say it does.
Here's a fly with one of those one-click filters added in Picasa.
This little moth was on a dandelion weed that was poking up through the ivy. Still counts as being in the ivy, though. Also counts as a critter.
Another critter, and another photo-filter. I thought this alligator lizard looked like a dinosaur! The ivy is full of lizards!
I have another ivy-dwelling critter than I will put in a separate post.
