  1. Such vivid colors of the vine covered wall. So pretty. Do you know the name of the vine?

  4. Such dramatic pictures!! Have to wonder how vines could be so happy growing on walls. Walls would have to be dryer than the ground.

      Thank you! I was actually wondering the same thing so I looked it up: it climbs by means of aerial rootlets with matted pads which cling strongly to the substrate.

        Oh, very much so. I’m not too down about the prospect of a milder winter though πŸ˜›

          I really miss the snow and a proper winter! Here in Amsterdam, winter’s usually just a big mess of rain and sleet..

            I love the snow, but only for like a month, and I hate being cold so, since I know it’s only temporary, I’m happy about the milder climate here. Even though it’s a sleety, rainy mess πŸ˜›

    You’re right, the world is a beautiful place… sometimes we just have to go looking. You captured these leaves and color wonderfully.

      Thanks so much, Jim! Yes, we have to keep our eyes open so we don’t turn blind to the everyday beauty around us!
