GREEN THUMB SUNDAY Fall beauty

This is my view from my kitchen window. My husband usually rips out the red vine, urgh! I've forgotten it's name, but it does spread around a bit too vigorously. It has climbed up the pine tree and is a spectacular shade of red, don't you think? Here is a closeup-- somebody tell me what it is called, please. I am embarrassed that I've forgotten its name.

This is a closeup of the Japanese maple that you can see in the first pic, on the lower left. It gets more colorful and beautiful every day. I am thinking the sheer beauty of fall almost makes up for the fact that the next season is winter (i.e. too much snow, too cold to garden, etc.etc.).

I don't grow one myself, but I think that vine looks like virginia creeper. Lovely fall colors there!
