Color of Maples

The rain continues and since it is expected throughout this week, a quick shot of beautiful foliage was in order for it is about to disappear.

Golden in color is our Norway maple (Acer platanoides)...

... while our Japanese maple (left) is an ember glow. We are not aware of its cultivar for we moved it from an office property about 10 years ago, as the construction around it was doing damage to the tree. It is estimated to be 60-70 years of age and what a beauty.
