Kenilworth Ivy

I found Kenilworth ivy blooming near the side door of our house on the 25th of November.

Its small size blended in with the surroundings.

The flowers measure from 5/8 inch wide to 1/4 inch front to back. The lobed leaves range from 1 inch to 1 1/4 inch. They grow on the sides of the castles in England. I’m not sure how my grandmother got hers. (I assume it’s family hand-me-down.)

This must be the gnome of the ivy “woods.”

It’s a friendly-looking gnome.
