Nestled in the beautiful city of Antwerp; is my mother's little courtyard. I don't think that there was anything there when they moved in a few years back, but she has planted it up with Ferns and Hostas and this gorgeous creeper. And the best part of it is that her bedroom looks out onto it with ceiling to almost-floor sized windows and patio doors. So she gets to see this from her bed!
And it's totally private and not overlooked by anyone which is rare in the city.
You can snoop some more around their house here
There are some more shots of the courtyard in a different season.
After a few days away, we came back and I noticed the significant changes in the colours on the Acers in our garden.

I don't think this picture does this justice. It's totally KABLAMMING right now.
I call this The Lichtenstein Phase.
Now I just thought these leaves were about to drop, but the tone has just gone so, so, I don't know what word I could call it, but whatever this colour tone is, it really tugs at my heart strings.
I am in lust with trees in Autumn.
