Just a Little Fall Color

We really don't get fall colors here in Molfetta. Most of the local trees are either olives or pines, which don't change color, or other trees with leaves that just turn a drab brown.

I found this plant growing along a fence out in the countryside. My husband says it's Canadian ivy and since I know so little about plants, I'm willing to take his word for it. If you have a better name for it, do let me know!
Here's a larger view of it. It's not Vermont, but I'll take what I can get, fall color-wise!

I do love the colours of Autumn! They can be so vivid and distinctive!

Thank you for your recent visit to my blog :-)

Nice! Some autumn color especially for you.

We don't have autumn here too — what you described sounds exactly what happens in the Philippines.

And I'm an absolute doofus with plant names too! We should form a club or something. ;D

Lovely, bold colours. I was hoping to get out and take some autmn colour photos but it rained, so I stayed in. Maybe tomorrow!

The plant is a Virginia creeper (parthenocissus quinquefolia - if you want to show of with the latin name!)

Hilda - we can make a club, but I've seen photos of the flowers in your garden...I don't know how to grow plant either! Too much water, too little water...I never get it right!

Marley - thank you! That's fantastic to know! Nothing Canadian about that plant, eh?

Like us we hardly get any fall color in Malta so it's nice to see it on other blogs.

I liked your account of the naming process, very similar to us maltese.

I thought it looked like a Virginia Creeper too, yay Marley!

Very pretty!
