More of My Favorite Trees – the Maples!

I love trees – all kinds of trees and thought I would share a few more of my favorites for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge.

How about those Maples?  There are so many sizes, shapes and varieties in the genus ‘Acer’ family, they hardly seem related to one another.  But then you know how families are.  🙂

I’ll start with the native Vine Maple adorning our gardens and adding bursts of color to the evergreen forests of the Pacific Northwest.

Next up is the cultured Japanese Maple –  bold and beautiful inside and out – with sturdy twisted limbs supporting colorful, lacy leaves. I found these at the Washington Arboretum.

Finally here are the giant Maple trees of the Hoh River Rainforest – completely content to be swallowed up in moss!
