Acer Ablaze

After a glorious show, our little acer tree in the front garden is about to give up all her leaves.

For about a month she has been gradually changing from green to a rich red.

Each day we watched as the colour grew more vibrant.  The dark red became more crimson.

In the sunshine, the leaves looked as if they were on fire.  In fading evening light, they gave off a deep rich glow.

Now, with each blustery autumn wind, the leaves drift down making a faded tapestry on the green grass. 

I wouldn't be surprised if her branches were bare come morning... the grand finale to fall. 


  1. Great colours, but I suppose she is tired after her magnificent show and leaves will soon fall.
