garden bright spot

The Japanese Maple is showing exquisite color. It appears to think it’s autumn, but in fact it does this in the spring and turns gold in autumn. The tiny blossoms produce winged seeds. Spectacular!!

The light was just right this evening, even if the garden was not. More light on the maple this year due to a serious tree trimming job last fall.

It’s always a thrill to watch this beauty through the seasons. I love the contract with all the greens surrounding it.
