This climbing ivy is frequently seen covering the exteriors of buildings. Have you ever stopped to really look at HOW it does that? It sends out little “feet” that have a round base that sticks to the side of the building. It climbs to the top and grows and expands literally one foot in front of the other!
This ivy is not tended. No one is spraying the side of the building with water. It has found a way to nourish itself. It cares for itself by storing up energy as needed so it can survive frost and the winter cold, and yet continue to bloom, produce and thrive during the other seasons.
What lessons in RESILIENCE do we take from this wise and tenacious plant?
