I’ve decided on a name. If, and this is a very big IF, I were to get another dog (pug) I would name her Ivy. I am a bit obsessed with the name actually. I would even feel confident naming a little human that. Could you imagine two pugs named Emmie and Ivie (I would do the “ie” to be consistent). My only hesitation is that the dog could be crazier than Emmie. I already have my hands full with her OCD, digestively sensitive, crazy self. While a pup named Ivie would be cute, I’ll have to take the Ivy that grows so beautifully as a plant in the meantime.
I’ve posted, photographed, and talked about how much I love climbing ivy. There really is nothing more beautiful than outdoor spaces in walls of green. I’ve rounded up a few new images that give off the exact vibe I am feeling for every outdoor space. Basically, who needs paint when you have ivy?
So you know that bare wall you have? Go cover it in ivy!
