    Always amongst the first to burst into colour. Beauty!

  2. Eliza, thank you for sharing this magical taste of autumn. Your photo is stunning.

    Like bright embers in the woods ✨

    These creepers never fail to please.

  6. Beautiful capture of this wonderful season!🎃

  7. Beautiful color, now, if I didn’t have to pull it out in so many places. 🙂 Nice header shot.

  8. Another beautiful note for fall.

  9. Lovely sign of autumn’s arrival. 🍂

  10. Alice says:

    The bark is interesting. A strong-willed vine…and good to know the difference between this one and poison ivy!! ( many don’t!)

    • Eliza Waters says:

      I liked the contrast of the dark cherry bark with the red/orange creeper. Yes, important to tell the difference between it and PI. A distinction I learned early in life!

    Fall is in the air! I’m seeing the maples start to color in the mountains and soon enough the virginia creeper here in the garden will follow your lead.

  12. So beautiful! Being 96 here yesterday, ours haven’t changed yet.

  13. Love the fall color. Believe it or not that grows wild here too..though it never really looks like that.

  14. Jet Eliot says:

    Elegant photo, Eliza. Somehow you captured the surrender of summer here.

  15. John says:

    Nice colors! This plant grows like a weed in Michigan, very fast!

  16. sandyjwhite says:

    Yes, those fall colors are on the way. I love them!

  17. Very nice Eliza! Very colorful!

  18. Tina says:

    I grow Virginia Creeper, too, but mine has never looked like that! Mine will be a mauve color, but not until November. Lovely photo, Eliza.

  19. Debbie says:

    Oooh, pretty!! Love the way the sun makes its color pop!

  20. Murtagh's Meadow says:

    Looking very autumnal

  21. shoreacres says:

    I saw some today, but it’s still wearing green. In time we may get some color, especially if we have rain and a quick drop in temperatures. I’m thinking November!

  22. Kris P says:

    Beautiful fall color – already!

  23. Cathy says:

    Big sigh…. autumn is coming! The bark of the tree is so beautiful contrasting with the bright leaf. 😃

  24. Now that’s a native species we share, even as far apart as Texas and Massachusetts. One is currently creeping up a tree in our back yard.

  25. All my invasives ae looking so lovely lol and the birds are eating them up!

    • Eliza Waters says:

      At least Virginia creeper is a native, unlike that dreadful bittersweet, a curse upon my land!

      • Yes, Creeper is OK, but I have all the others along the river the state floods on numerous occasions. I had worked so hard on 3 spots but with all these months immobile looks like I never touched it. The woman who owned my place before me bought all her plants from the state and are now all invasive.

  26. Bela Johnson says:

    Beautiful shot. ❤️

  27. As always . . .just beautiful. I can only love this vine in autumn. . . and climbing. It is a pest in my flowers, but I fall for it every autumn!


  28. Jane Lurie says:

    Welcome autumn. Such pretty colors.

  29. Often the first sign of autumn. A bit troublesome though. Some was near our wood chip pile, spread into it, and for the longest time I had to remove the roots each time I filled the wheelbarrow so to not spread it into the gardens. Beautiful but aggressive. We ended up having the old pile removed and a new one created when a pine tree was taken down.

  30. Nice composition! This vine is so pretty in the fall. I have seen it red too.
