Green. Very green.

I’m not absolutely sure, but I think the tree with these leaves is a catalpa of some kind. At any rate, it’s sending up some new leafy growth at the moment, and they’re surprisingly brown compared to the older leaves. The opposite route from that most leaves follow.

This is a photo from a couple of weeks ago when one of the maples in the front yard was just putting out new leaves. I was startled by how much the pairs with the sheathes looked like little birds, all alert and ready to fly.

Unseasonably green

That’s because the photo was taken quite a while ago. It’s been so grey and wet and generally grey that I thought it was time to pull out a photo from a different season.

Smoky green

The leaves of one of our Japanese maples are turning from green to red. The interim stage is a fascinating smoky colour, dark and rather sullen.

These broadleaf maple leaves seemed to have some kind of, well, something on them—those little black spots. I’m not sure if they are fungus or some kind of eggs. What’s interesting to me is that those places on the leaf aren’t turning colour the same way the rest is. I wonder why?

It’s raining, so they’ll be getting soggy now… but oh my, how pretty they are when it’s dry and they’re fresh-fallen!
