The Tree

This is the Maple which is right outside of my kitchen window. It puts on quite a show all year long. This is a pic of it this morning helping the patio umbrella shade the patio to keep Teddy cool.


This was it about a month ago.


Early spring with it's red buds.


Very very early spring and totally bare.


Holding snow during the big storm this past winter.



You could hardly see it during the storm.


Here it is with the first snow of the season.


Some days it was too cold to even open the window.


Leafless by Thanksgiving.


Past it's peak in Fall.


At it's best during my favorite season! Only 3 more months until we can see this again. I love my Maple.

Trees are beautiful all year round, but moreso in Autumn. Especially maple trees.

I love maple trees. There really aren't that many out here. Only ones that people have planted. It's an evergreen world - well except for the cottonwoods.

ARE YOU CRAZY?!
You spoil me...

A lovely year-long retrospective of your maple tree!

Maples are so big, strong, and fluffy with leaves. Fall colors make my heart flutter. Soon, very soon.

I liked the photo chronology of the Maple tree.

It is a good tree that keeps Teddy cool!

Thanks for sharing your view. My sister-in-law has a view from her kitchen window that I just adore, too. Come visit when you can...

Lovely season to season comparison!

I have a Japanese Maple, which I really love - though it's always "in color" and is never green.

The addition of the toy pick up truck on the garden "altar" is terrific!!!

What a great series of photos of your maple tree :)
Maples are so pretty all year around, I love the small flowers in spring and the red leaves in autumn.

We do not have distinct seasons in my part of the world and that is why I like to see photographs like yours. Thank you.

What a lovely journey through the last year. I must say I like it best in the fall also.
