Never the Same Picture

Just took a break from fall cleanup chores and went to grab my camera to capture a few images.  I went to upload into my November 2012 image folder, and noticed the November 2011 folder right next to it, so I had to look. Same day, same garden, different year. Yes, we did some garden editing this spring, but what struck me is the dramatic color difference in the Japanese Maple Acer palmatum ‘Katsura’.

  1. Kathy,
    do you think the color difference is because it was a damper summer/fall? Also, we need another blog post to cheer us on through the dark winter days!:)

    • I do think a wetter fall has something to do with it. After a dry early summer, we had rain in August and September, which actually pushed new foliage growth. These new leaves weren’t ready to let go in mid fall. The ‘Katsura’ actually brightened up the week of Thanksgiving. And yes, I’ve been lax with the posts lately. Trying to come up with something stimulating to say.
