Automne à Paris


 Here in Alabama, we call this Virginia Creeper. I would love to know what the French version is called.  In Paris,  it is glorious in the fall when the leaves turn , but I love it in the winter as well,  when only the vines are left, winding their way up the walls.

We call it Virginia Creeper here in Melbourne too. It's a great vine as it marks each season wonderfully with its changing colours from red to green back to red again before falling and starting again.

You chose a great background to get the shot. Come play the "Dreaming of France" meme if you want to. Here’s my Dreaming of France meme

I agree with the post above and suggest "Vigne Vierge... " - Lovely shades of reds and oranges in the winter. Veronique (French Girl in Seattle) -- from NYC for a change! :-)

Oh, dear, that's not what I know as Virginia creeper. "Mine" is a five-leaved vine--I'll have to google this! The five-leaved one also turns lovely colors in the fall.

Whatever you call it, this stuff makes everything look pretty—especially in autumn, I think. Wonderful image, V!

I think it's so pretty the way it drapes around building and the fronts of homes. It doesn't matter what the season is, it's always pretty to look at. :)

I know not what the creeper is called Virginia, but it looks mighty pretty here.
