The Mother Japanese Maple Tree

Posted by

This is the original Japanese Maple Tree in our yard from which the one we planted came. It is at least 50 years old. Perhaps more.

Bonjour Ruthie. Jolie photo avec de beaux nuages. Je préfère les érables quand ils flamboient, à l'automne. Bonne journée

A beautiful, animated sky as a backdrop!! It's hard to believe that your Japanese maple has lived this long. So many people I know says theirs only last 10-15 years.

To enjoy a Japanese Maple 50 years is remarkable. Planting a tree is a long-time affair of watching it grow.

The tree seems to be doing well for it's age. I guess that could be said about many of us. ;-)
