Heading for a Fall

With the exception of a few Potentilla very other deciduous tree in my collection has lost it’s leaves completely. Well, all but this Acer Palmatum. These pics were taken this morning, 1 December. As can be seen the tree is still in leaf even though it has been sitting on the same bench with my other Acers.

Although I suffer from that common male malady known as colour blindness I can still appreciate the lovely autumn colours.

Cold winds are on the way so I reckon that these leaves will have fallen by the end of this week. It looks like a big farewell to the mild weather and a big hello to higher heating bills but it was good while it lasted.

    Gorgeous colors – all my maples seem to just poof, drop them in a wet brown mess.
