{Our Acer Trees in the Spring}

On May 12, we had as usual a bright blue sky and it made our two Acer trees stand out even more so with their spring leaves. Have a look at our Acer Negundo Kelly's Gold Yellow Box Elder and Acer Rubrum or Red Maple:
To the left, Acer Negundo Kelly's Gold Yellow Box Elder and to the right Acer Rubrum or Red Maple.
That bright green and red does not stay all summer... but in the fall they both look striking again!
Acer Negundo Kelly's Gold - Yellow Box Elder with to the left Robinia pseudo acacia - Black Locust.
The tall one to the left is an oak tree an also the one to the right is another oak tree, the sawtooth oak.
In our climate, trees grow so fast and also very tall!
Don't you love this Acer Negundo Kelly's Gold?!

  8. Lieve Mariette,

    Je hebt de bomen prachtig gevangen in het zonlicht in een paradijselijke tuin,werkelijk een lust voor het oog en een waar genot om zo'n tuin te bezitten.

    Wij vermaakten ons gisteren vlak bij huis uren lang in Heempark Frater Simon Deltour bij velen bekend als het ‘kleine paradijsje aan de Dommel’, waar je kunt genieten van de verschillende landschapstypen van de Kempen en de Meierij en de daarbij behorende plantengroei. In het heempark vind je twintig verschillende landschappen uit de omgeving van Eindhoven. In het heempark beleef je de natuur van de Kempen in één wandeling!
    Zo prachtig de natuur in het voorjaar.

    Fijne dag en lieve groet!!
    Ger

    1. Lieve Ger,
      Ja, het is een lust voor het oog vanaf onze slaapkamer, kamer en natuurlijk nog beter vanaf ons balkon en als je zelf in de tuin bent. Elk voorjaar is weer móói. Maar de zomer komt er snel aan; nog drie weekjes en dan hebben we de langste dag alweer!
      Jullie boffen met zulk mooi Heempark in de buurt. Daar zou ik graag in mee wandelen!
      Ook een fijne 1ste juni week en liefs,
      Mariette

  19. How absolutely gorgeous! You always have such lovely and special things to share and I for one, always learn from you, as you even have knowledge on the beautiful trees names. Thank you for your wonderful comment on my storage, but really, I have some more ugly storage too, lol... Mariette, do you speak Spanish, by any chance? Have a super week, my friend.

  20. So lovely, Mariette! But of course, with your green thumb I do think anything you grow looks so healthy and beautiful! It must be so nice to see your hard work and nurturing paying off with large, colorful trees to enjoy from your window.

    1. Dearest Karen,
      A green thumb alone would not do it in our harsh and too hot/dry climate. Poor water holding capacity of the soil. We are the very first people that ever cultivated this piece of land so there's not that much fertility yet. The reason those trees thrive is because their roots tap from the creek that is running behind them... Right where the grass ends that is!
      Hugs,
      Mariette
