If you have some ivy growing in your garden, dig it up, put it in a pretty pot (this one I got at Goodwill for $1.75) and bring it in the house.

Ivy is a nice plant to use in decorating. It brings greenery and freshness to your room.

Ivy in a pot does work nicely in the home... I much prefer it to how WILD it grows in the ground outdoors... PRETTY photo!

Karrie just found a great mini conservatory while we were out junking on Monday, so digging up ivy starts is in order!

I think ivy is wonderful!! I actually winter over all my ivy. I have some in the house and some outside. There are so many different varieties.

The ivy really looks at home in this lovely old pot.
I do prefer to see it inside rather then out, though I occasionally use it as a filler in hanging baskets.
Your pot was a good find..!

Hi Donna
I just got a white tureen with no lid for $3 at Goodwill today and dug up some hostas and sweet woodruff, planted it and put it on the table onour front porch. Both of us are being thrifty today!
Hugs, Rhondi

What a lovely shot! Ivy is the only houseplant I can grow because the covered porch makes the house to dark for anything else. I need to have the green!

Meggie said...

I agree, Donna. Ivy is a lovely way to bring the outdoors inside.

I love ivy, I have it in pots all around my garden and also growing against a part of my fence. The idea of bringing it in is a wonderful one.;))

Hi Donna,

What a great idea to dig up the ivy and put in in a pot - that way you have a lovely house plant and the ivy is "contained" and not growing wild in your garden.

I have some growing up the side of my bricks and need to remove it before it damges them - now I know what to do with it.
Have a wonderful week. Otis and Riley make me smile everytime I visit your blog.
