Virginia Creeper

I have had this vine growing on my fence for a few years and it is finally turning into something substantial so I looked it up to see what it is and found it is Virginia Creeper. It just appeared, I did not plant it, so I was a little suspicious.  I like the look of it, though,  it's not too overwhelming (not yet) and I like how it turns this burnt red color in the fall. I know, I know, I shouldn't let it grow up my window, but it's so pretty, I think I'll leave it for now...and pretend I live in an ivy-covered cottage.

And look at this pretty garden I passed yesterday morning on a walk. Love that purple grass. I'm not a fan of grasses, but I sometimes like them in other people's gardens.
