Four years ago I planted these two trees in our backyard in hopes of future shade. I purposely chose maples that would provide brillant Fall colors. This year the trees grew like crazy and gave lots of shade.
The colors are brillant, covering the range from green, to yellow, orange and red.
Some of them have fallen and made pretty pictures on my lawn.
I don't even mind when they turn crisp and brown....
because these guys love to rake them into piles and have fun.
Autumn is the best!
