This beauty is a Japanese maple volunteer that appeared as one tiny twig with a couple of green leaves.
A few years later, a brilliant crimson has developed. Hope it lasts many years!
We did some heavy trimming of our shrubs and small trees this season. We are allowed to burn refuse from our own property in this township. Rather than fill a landfill, we wait until a calm day and light it up.
Bill stands ready to push the pile around with his large bucket and tractor if it gets out of control, but we have never needed to do so.
