Good shot and a lot of history. I see ivy here too... and often wonder what it's doing to the wall it grows on
That sounds like a wonderful tradition. I love the mossy stone walls too. We have climbing plants, but not ivy, which is sad because I really like the shape of their leaves.
Romantic photo! I've heard that ivy is bad for walls though. In fact it's considered an invasive species here in Virginia.
Bonitas tradiciones para una universidad como es la de Princeton. Un saludo, Ángel
I didn't know about the athletic league... Ivy is said to be pretty bad for walls but it's such a lovely tradition!
You have caught the light in this one really well. It enhances the mossy green tones with a warm but subtle glow. Bravo.
Great image. And very old traditio.
What a lovely light, late or early?
I didn't know the Ivy League was originally and athletic one! Fascinating!
Such a lovely spot, and image of course too!
Super shot Lulu, I have lots of ivy in the garden but I have to really keep it under control or it takes over :)
Neat bit of American history that is so interesting. Lovely photo to go with it too!
This is so pretty, Jude!
At the rate of one sprig for every graduating class, when will wi be entirely covered?And, quick, can you name the eight Ivy League schools without looking them up?
Where did the term "Ivy League" come from, anyway?
Thanks everyone! Peter - it is late afternoon light:) Jack - ha, scarily I actually know them all but will spare you recitation:) Norma - apparently the 'planting of ivy' is a tradition once used at the other ivy colleges - acc. to Wikipedia, a journalist began using the term to refer to the group of colleges and it grew from there.
