Watching 041216

I'll be watching for this shadow to fill in with foliage.

With their small stature, tremendous variety, and four-season beauty, Japanese maples always offer something to see. Dark, undulating branches sometimes crested with snow create a variety of graceful silhouettes in winter. The rest of the year, the branches provide a structure on which a slipcover of leaves spreads colors and textures. Lush, new spring growth emerges, filling the bleak landscape with a variety of hues we usually expect in fall. Summer brings maturity.
Japanese maples offer countless variations in size, shape, and texture.



  1. I love the Japanese Maples but they seem to struggle with our winters. They are indeed beautiful and they certainly cast an interesting shadow. I will look for that shadow with the foliage. Great shot,Gayle ...
