Walking up the dark driveway and the English Ivy which lines it brushed against my leg. I thought something had me. We have a lot of the stuff and it takes some trimming in the summer months to keep it under control.
There's a saying that in the first year after planting English Ivy it creeps, the second year it crawls, and in the third year it leaps. The fourth year you awaken one morning and it will have you in a Full Nelson.
