January Japanese Maple tree

Posted by
Ruthiebear (Titusville, NJ, United States) on 6 January 2020 in Plant & Nature.

I have always wanted to do a study of something to follow it as it changes during the year. This year I plan to post a monthly photo of several things around my yard/street. This was taken January 1, 2020, the Japanese maple tree we planted from a seedling over 20 years ago.
I value your comments

SONY NEX-C3 1/320 second F/5.6 ISO 200 38 mm

It's just amazing how the maple can retain its leaves for so long, Ruthie...often until the new buds push them off. So beautiful.
