Matchbox Gallery #4

"Maple #2"

There are so many different kinds of maple trees in our yard and neighborhood. Last night I tried looking up the types in our tree book, but only came away confused. I love looking as the subtle color changes in the keys or wings on this maple. The red stems just adds to the beauty.

oh that green and red combo is my favourite... the Maple is my oldest daughter's fave tree, do you have sugar maples there? maybe it is too hot for them...

This is my favorite maple. The colors are just so beautiful. I like looking at this image large to see all the subtle gradations.

We do not have sugar maples in the south. All we have are antique dealers selling the maple sugar buckets.
