I took my annual fall picture of my Virginia Creeper this afternoon.
Here it is in all its fall splendor of color. It didn't get as big or thick this year but I'm pretty sure that's because (dummy, dummy, dummy) I didn't get around to pruning it this early spring when it was still dormant. It was already sprouting little green leaves when I finally made it out there with my pruners and gave it a bit of a shaping up. I'll know to make sure to do it at the usual earlier time from now on.
Our trees are just about at the peak of their color season right now. Here's hoping we can get by a few weeks without a wind storm that rips all the leaves off the trees.
Oh, if we could only make this particular time of year last about three months!
