The lamp’s new clothes

DAY 197 (19 OCTOBER) – Red emperor maple (Acer palmatum) (Farnham)

It’s been my aim not to repeat species in this blog, but I didn’t recognise this beautiful tree as the same as a small shrub in my mother’s garden on Day 172. All part of my steep learning curve.

Here it is in its full glory with dappled trunk, cloaking a street lamp in red papery leaves.
