A Blazing Maple

Submitted by Kathie Snedecker on 12/6/11

Every fall we look forward to our stunning Japanese maple tree.  The leaves turn from a summer color of wine-red to this brilliant crimson, and there is always a magical time when half remain on the tree and the other half carpet the ground beneath.  When the sun shines through the leaves, it is breathtaking.  This fall it surpassed even itself.
