The Aristocrat, Again


I don't think I've looked on a Japanese Maple that I didn't like. This particular one is in the Japanese Garden at Brooklyn Botanic as viewed on an early evening walk this week, but I don't think I could count the number of times I've been inspired by one. (I've taken to calling them the aristocrats after Edward S. Barnard in his New York City Trees Field Book.)

Beautiful shot. Best tree in the world. The only trees out here on the west coast that are giving us any color are japanese maples.
