George, I was at Lavernock on 27th [am] and thought the ivy looked. Good find. I think that L-album Wainscot has undergone a massive expansion in VC41 and has proved to be a very good colonizer, expanding quickly from its south Gower base. However a Cardiff specimen was surprise. Mike & I will check out our VofG ivy during the next couple of weeks, especially if this weather holds.
A lot of the ivy flowers were yet to open, so should be good for a while yet.
