Leaves of Three, let it Be!
Leaves of Five, let it Thrive!
Often confused with the poison ivy, which often grows alongside, is the Virginia Creeper. Only the most sensitive have a reaction to this plant. The berries are poisonous to humans; but the birds, squirrels, and deer, delight in the bounty!
A Blush of Fall

Saturday, which was yesterday, we woke up to a hard frost. The first this fall. A signal to the sensitive!
Pick Your Color
Seemingly overnight the colors chose to take on the wardrobe of fall. Pleasing to the eye I think!
Exposed to the elements more than some, the leaves growing on the outermost confines of the woods, changed to a pleasing red hue overnight!
Not giving up easily, the five leaved creeper mustered up it's best example of red. The final celebration of a successful and abundant growing season!
