The Beauty of Fall

Well my tree is getting prettier every fall. I wanted the red maple back here and for the first 5 or 6 years I thought they did me wrong..the colors just weren't that pretty.  Finally it is getting striking...guess it is the beauty of getting mature...tee hee.
I actually had a design when my husband planted these trees.  Since dark colors reseed I wanted the fruitless plum in the furthest part of the yard.  I am very pleased now that they are bigger. When we got this house there was nothing in the back yard but star thistle.. I guess most of the trees are about 14 years old now.
Have a beauty full weekend................... DIANE
