red or green

| No Comments
Since the spring, my daughter and I have enjoyed watching the development of the Japanese maple that we always pass on our walk to the library. It has always stood out because of its reddish maroon color. In early June, the leaves looked like this.


And those tiny red things which look like teensy flowers, are actually the keys just starting to grow. So cute!

When we walked by the tree on our first trip to the library since our return, we almost didn't recognize it....


It's all green now!


Hmm....while my ash tree's new twig growth changed from green to gray and the girl ash tree's leaves are changing from green to yellow, this tree's gone green. I wonder how its leaves will change in the fall. Will they turn back to red?
