The Red Barked Maple

Our Red-barked Maple tree has finally leaved-out this year. It is always the last tree to break bud each year, but with the cold, damp weather it was the latest it has ever been. Right now its beautiful new leaves are the same copper red as the bark. Soon they will green up for the summer before turning a fiery scarlet red in the Fall.
