Wordless Wednesday–the ” Lollipop” Trees

20170306_075329

These two maples are in front of our house. They are covered in English ivy, something that can be terribly invasive in many parts of the country but is kept in check in our part of the country primarily by the cold ( at least for now. In the future,  who knows?)

This time of year when the maples have no leaves, I always think that the ivy makes their trunks look sort of like lollipops.  But at least it’s some green in an otherwise bleak time while we wait for other things to start blooming!
