Thanks for the reminder to double click - it was certainly worth it to see fall in your garden close up. In the first picture the window reflection looks like a painting. And it was so strange to see the neighbor's house beyond the back fence! Your trees are spectacular.

I wonder if the Korean Acers are more hardy because their weather in general is more difficult than what Japan receives.?? That may not be true but for some reason this comes to mind.
Your garden has plenty of color now. It looks sharp.

We have neighboring houses quite close to us but their trees and ours keep them hidden until the leaves come down.

Good question about the climate difference btwn. Japan and Korea. I will have to see if I can find out why they are hardier than Jp. maples.

Absolutely gorgeous. We were in Door County last week and caught the last of their very pretty leaves. Just cannot get enough.

I think this burst of color is what keeps us from going crazy at the coming seasonal changes.


Wonderful autumn color in your garden. Darned jumping worms!

Fall leaf color outshines any summertime flower display in my book, not that we experience much in the way of fall (or even winter) leaf color here. I love all your pretty maples. I've been contemplating adding one or 2 small Japanese maples to a shady, protected area of my garden next year - the trees don't become available locally until spring.


"All in all, I don't think I can complain that we haven't had any fall color this year!"

No worries about a shortage of complaints, though: Virginia gardeners are making up for any uncomplaining Wisconinites. In theory, we could get a decent display, but several weeks later than usual. In practice, that seems unlikely unless hard freezes also hold off...

It was definitely worth the trouble and worry to bolt that dazzling Korean maple back together! Will let its brilliance seep into my soul, currently in need of warmth and cheer.

I was just wondering how many trees you have in your garden when you wrote there are 9 Korean maples, do you know how many total trees?

Lovely color!

When we were raking leaves out front, I counted 20 deciduous trees. Of course, a few of them are tall and very skinny species maples and a couple of grafted standards that will remain modest. I am sure there are at least that many in the back and probably more!

It is a good year for fall color! I'm happy to see it, too, as it seems like it's been awhile since we've been able to enjoy the leaves a bit. Your yard is so bright and beautiful, even with the gray skies that always seem to be around.
