I hereby declare it Virginia Creeper Week on this blog. Here’s another smasher, which I’ve had my eye on for a while, waiting for it to turn the most delicious shade of pinky-red.

Queen Square is a lovely, tranquil place to sit, by the way. Although I must admit I shattered the peace of it many years ago when I helped launch a giant rocket there on Bonfire Night. Crazy times, now long behind me.

Much as I dislike the onset of autumn (although it’s not really autumn I’ve got a problem with – it’s the season that follows it), I love spotting Virginia creepers when they’ve reached the optimum shade of crimson. Here are a couple of corkers I’ve spotted recently, against brilliant blue skies.
