Have you ever seen a tree with red leaves?
Well I found one growing in my friend’s back garden.
I’ve always been fascinated by trees and was keen on joining Parul Thakur’s interesting theme #ThursdayTreeLove.
Unfortunately, I never found an interesting tree to photograph and post till yesterday I saw this gorgeous maroon leafed Maple in my friend’s backyard . I thought it was just perfect for this meme.
As trees go, this one’s a a baby . Just 3 years old. It stands in place of a once magnificent old tree that was felled by Hurricane Sandy that created havoc in New Jersey in its wake.
The Japanese Maple is a deciduous tree that is bare in Winter but come Spring , and its leaves go from being bright red to darker wine colored in the summer to red again in the Fall.
I’m joining Parul Thakur his week, with her post #ThursdayTreeLove 10.
If you would like to play along, post a picture of a tree on your blog and link to Parul’s post.
Isn’t this a wonderful way to appreciate Nature’s bounty?
