    It's ivy, in its mature, flowering stage.

    It looks like a form of ivy, this flowers and also later on produces berries, which is beneficial for the birds during the winter months. I have the same in my garden. It is swarming with bees and I also get the red admiral, and holly butterflies on it as well.

    We get a lot of hoverflies pretending to be hornets on ours.
    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3
