Last Look at Autumn Blaze

With the (ugh!) snow showers and high winds predicted for today, I took a photo of the Autumn Blaze maple in our front yard on Friday afternoon.  Good thing, too, because I doubt the maple will have many leaves left after today’s storm. Of course, the snow specks are melting the minute they hit the ground, but today’s weather is a chilling reminder of what’s to come.

One of the things I love about Autumn Blaze is the variability of its color. From a distance, the leaves all look reddish-orange, but up close you can see tones of green and brown as well as reds and oranges. The bright red veins in the leaves are eye-catching, too. With the winds as strong as they are today, I won’t have to rake the leaves on this tree–they will just blow right up to Canada.
