Maple

Both Art and I love maples! The colors, the leaves, the varieties, all the different sizes and shapes.

While serving coffee to one of our senior customers the topic of gardening came up. Flowers, shrubs, trees, veggies and of course maples. Art mentioned that maples was a favorite, particularly Japanese maples. We were further discussing the high cost of trees and shrubs which has prevented us from buying one, after all what if it dies...yikes!

I guess our customer took pity on us because, thanks to her, we now have one....well a seedling anyways!



What a very sweet lady.
