Our little new maple is finally starting to clue in to the weather and change colours.
I should explain, if you’re wondering what on earth I’m talking about, that we planted a new tree in our yard when we had to take down an ash tree. I named her Hope and I’ve been keeping a careful eye on her. She seems to have taken to our yard, looking quite happy and green in her spot. But it did worry me when all around her the other trees were quickly changing colour in response to the drop in temperature but Hope was blissfully continuing with her green hue. Maybe our little Hope needed some remedial help in tree education or something.
I was really happy to finally detect changes in her leaves a couple of days ago. Phew!
