Years ago when I rearanged my garden, I descided I wanted a vine.(in Dutch: Wingerd) I love the colours in autumn. For some reason each autumn the leaves were ripped off by the wind before turning that lovely red colour. But this year it seems that I'm lucky. They are still on, and turning purple and reddish. Fingers crossed!
This picture is from last year: You can see the wood beneath is suffering a bit from the vine. But on the other hand: I love wood that looks like that!
