OH GLORIOUS JAPANESE MAPLE – Marilyn Armstrong

Japanese Maple Tree – FOTD – November 8, 2018


When all the other maple trees are bare and almost all of the oak leaves have fallen, suddenly, my Japanese maple tree lit up like a neon sign.

I have had this tree since I brought it home from Maryland in a bucket. It was not even a foot tall. Now it’s about 20-feet tall, though it still needs a bit of support. It usually turns red in the fall — but not like this.

This was neon sign nightclub light flashing colors. I not only didn’t add saturation to the pictures. I actually reduced it a bit because it was a bit blinding.

We’re supposed to have another not rainy day tomorrow, so maybe I’ll take more pictures!

  1. Japanese maples are beautiful! Yours are brighter than the ones I’ve seen around here, which tend to turn a dark red, almost a red wine color.

  2. That is the single thing I missed most when I left Canada – those magic wonderful maple trees. For years and years to come I always had one or two Japanese Maple Trees in pots for my private joy…. and in rememberance of those Canadian maples.

  3. Simply stunning! Thanks for sharing with those of us who got a brownish grey with maybe a little gold in our leaves affair. Those fire bushes were the saving grace, they turn roughly the shade of your maple, but otherwise…bleah and bland was Utah’s Autumn colors…maybe it’s mourning yet another – however long – of red politics hereabouts and thinks that’s enough red for anybody.
