DAY 23 (28 APR) – Norway maple (acer platanoides) (Farnham, England)
Blighty’s dull skies look better through the beautiful foliage of this Norway maple. I love the geometric patterns of its branches.
I also like that it bucks the trend and opts for autumn colours now in spring. I started thinking it must be a red maple but their leaves are truly red – not wine-coloured like these. And they’re native to North America, whereas the Norway maple is more common in Europe.
