Day Sixteen

The theme for Becky’s  April Squares challenge is ‘top’ 

    1. On Top of the World – summit, crown, peak or uppermost part of something
    2. Under the Big Top – topping or covering (or if you’re really lucky circus)
    3. Room at the Top – first or highest in position
    4. Cherry on Top – something made even more wonderful by becoming square
    5. Top and Tail – or maybe you’d prefer to play around with word combinations such as top dog, top stitch, top full, top line, top fruit, top hat, top secret, top knot, top drawer and top dollar!
Top Knot

When is a tree not a tree? When it is a utility post covered in ivy!

April Squares | Day Sixteen

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

    1. Fooled me at first, but then I noticed the wires. I just thought how weird it was trimmed so neatly. It will die though as they have cut it off at the base.

      1. oh that’s a shame 😦 you’d think after letting it get this big they would let it live. Wildlife must love it

  1. oh wow, not at all what i was expecting when you were taking about hair buns and birthdays! fabulous post Jude 😀

    1. I think that is why the ivy has been cut off at the base. Probably discovered when they did all the checks a few months ago, though the trimming looks recent.
