Ivy in Winter

Last year's end of January bouquet needs to be gathered from another place. The ivy that was growing on the tree outside Susan's studio at the navy yard was hacked last year, but it's not like ivy is a rare thing here in the city. I still can't help but think about flowers and bouquet material in the same way that I think of vegetables. I think of them as things to grow. I consider when to plant seed, what they need to succeed or when to expect their bloom for harvest. Which ones might succeed in a scrappy lot in the city? But also too, like the ivy above, where I might find them growing by the wayside.
