My study looks out on a fence that's usually covered by Virginia creeper and each autumn it really comes into its own. I love this time of year when one by one the deciduous plants —which are all exotic species in Australia — change color.
I particularly love the way the Virginia creeper twines through other plants, leaving a splash of scarlet — in this case over the bronzed green leaves of my self-sown tree fern.
The Virginia Creeper is always the first. Now I'm waiting for the Japanese Maple.
What about you? What signs of the new season — autumn down under or spring in the Northern Hemisphere — are you looking forward to?
