Thankful 10

Posted by
Ruthiebear (Titusville, NJ, United States) on 23 November 2018 in Landscape & Rural.

My final thankful image. This is a Japanese Maple tree we planted from a seedling from the established tree which was in our yard when we bought our house 33 years ago. I love this tree, having watched it grow from its infancy. The only oddity is the mother tree has red leaves all year and then in the fall the leaves turn green. This one has green leaves all year and they turn red in the fall.
I value your comments.
This is a short series of images of being thankful. I know this is a photo blog, but this series is not so much about the quality of the photos, as the feelings they evoke in me.

Magnifique cet Erable aux couleurs flamboyantes, et étonnant cette transformation du rouge en été au vert en hiver.

What a strange oddity, Ruthie, but, yes, this is a magnificent Japanese maple. One doesn't normally see them this big! I bet it makes passersby just stare at it.

That is a lovely tree. Odd about the colours, too. I guess the kid didn't want to grow to like her parents!

What an interesting reversal. Presumably the original was a cultured variety bred for its characteristics and the seedling reverted to a more natural state. This way round it is giving lovely colour when you most need it
