My World: Red Maples

Leaves of a Red Maple in our front yard, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. November 4, 2010.

This is my post for the My World meme.  It is hosted by Klaus, Ivar, Sandy, Wren, and Fishing Guy.  To learn more about our world or to join and share your part of the world, click HERE.

We’ve had a couple of days of cool, rainy days, and most of the leaves are off the trees in our yard.  Of course, that means there are a lot of leaves on the ground, but that’s a job for a drier day.

A maple tree in our front yard was among the last trees to hold onto its leaves.  The utility company did a pretty good job of mutilating the tree a couple of years ago, but the surviving branches still held some pretty autumn color.

These pictures were taken about a week ago.

    The maple trees are always so pretty in Autumn. Yesterday’s rain knocked a lot of our leaves off too.

    The trim trimmers from the utility companies really do a nice job of butchering up the trees, don’t they? Beautiful colors on this tree.

    It is amazing what trees can survive!! When you mention the mutilation, I remembered some trees cropped by the hydro people I have seen, and maybe I should go searching for some of them
