Blogger's Community Photo Challenge: Autumn

I have lots of tree photographs.. I especially like this one! To the best of my knowledge it is a Acer rubrum or more commonly known as a Red Maple. Red Maples run the range of fall color running from an orange/yellow to orange to red. Seeds from the same tree can grow up to be different shades of orange. Seedling selection..a fascinating subject!

This is a Blogger's Community Photo Challenge entry.. I am anxious to view the other entries beginning November 7th, 2008 :)


  1. Thanks for the lovely fall color photo - AND the horticulture lesson, Connie! We have mostly oaks on our property, but the Maples really are wonderfully colorful.
