Little lambs eat ivy

Probably not this kind. Who knows? The ivy that grows everywhere around here, in the woods, on the trees, and in the yard, is coming back from the winter blahs. The leaves are perking up and looking healthy and new tendrils are poking around.

There's a good deal of ivy in our lawn. Our "lawn" is not actually a lawn. There is some grass in it, much the same way that there are some African Americans in the Republican Party. Mostly our lawn is made up of little flowering plants, mosses, and ivy like this. The lawn ivy has smaller leaves, however, because the bigger leaves get cut up by the lawnmower.
