October 29


This Japanese Maple tree is in our backyard. The leaves are a burgundy red color all year, but turn a brighter red in the fall. This year they are more brilliant red than usual. I love the red on the tree and the circle of red beneath it too!

We have a Japanese maple in our front yard that we love. The only problem the previous owners planted it too close to the house!!
