Falaise et lierre / cliff and Ivy

The climbing site near Ornans, 22 km from Besançon (500m high)

It' s rare to find a ivy so old , it is particularly fascinating to see how the branches and the trunk take on the shape of the rock !

Click on the shots to enlarge them ;)

Il est rare de trouver de si vieux Lierre , la manière dant celui-ci épouse parfaitement le rocher est fascinant ! Ce site se trouve à 22 km au sud de besançon et 3 km au nord ouest d'Ornans , la falaise domine le confluent de la Loue et de la Brême .

That's amazing. We have wisteria here that has vines that get quite large.

The trunks of the tree in the last photo remind me of crawling snakes. What a fascinating plant. It must be very hardy to have lasted so long on that cliff.

I could not believe my eyes, when you said, it`s the ivy!! I enlarged the image, it`s unbelievably!
And WHAT, am I greedy - hm, I have to think twice and yes I AM, but only for summer!
Good night, sleep well!!
