My neighbour has an ornamental grapevine that overhangs our side fence. I never seem to notice this plant until autumn comes along and it bursts into colour.  

Growing up in an inner city neighbourhood in Melbourne, we lived in an old fire station and in the backyard we also had an ornamental grapevine that covered the back of the house. In autumn it was an absolutely spectacular sight, so special that I even had some wedding photos taken underneath it. Having such a plant near me still brings comfort and familiarity.
