I a sucker for a big old tree, especially when it’s showing such nice Autumn colours.
The leaves of the Japanese Maple were hanging down heavy with the rain.
A Japanese Maple and a House Finch (Carpodacus mexicanus) both make for a pretty Autumn image.
After a great Summer and as we move closer to September, there a subtle hints about that there is definitely a change coming! We’ll welcome it with open arms as we continue our own move into the new season.
This flower is from our Empress tree. The nut shaped item is a seed pod. The buds of these flowers have been on the tree since last fall. They suffered through the winter and have burst into hundreds of these bell shape flowers. Very Pretty!
