Our Acer Saccharum Marshall or Sugar Maple at its BEST

 This year the BEST was only a very brief moment of less than one week...
That is, before the leaves came all OFF!
The leaves of our Acer Saccharum Marshall (Sugar Maple) were HUGE this year; do you see my hand in this picture?
At the very top, the wind already did knock down several leaves.
Pictures are from November 12.
So picture perfect on a sunny day!

      Yes, twice annually they show their beauty, in the spring and again in the fall.

  3. Hello Mariette, How lucky you are in the South to have a sugar maple! There are so many beautiful southern plants that simply cannot survive northern winters, but you got this spectacular cold-weather plant to work for you! Imagine in places like Ohio and Vermont whole forests of these sugar maples in the fall, or in the spring for that matter, when the sugar is made.

    1. Dearest Jim,
      Yes, we sure are lucky for having this beauty in our garden and it is doing well.
      We're not making any maple syrup or sugar but enjoy that from the North!

      Yes, it did and even the carpet of golden leaves underneath was quite a sight.
      Then the yard crew came and they got all mulched...

  5. Your maple is majestic and gorgeous, Mariette. We have one in our yard that we treasure, but most of her leaves are gone now that we're into December.
    Blessings!

  9. Dear Mariette!
    I love such a beautiful sunny autumn.
    In my country, such a performance is very short-lived.
    It's raining now and it's very unpleasant.
    I wish you a blessed Advent:)

      Thank you and even here it was very short lived.
      The wind blows them down in a couple of days and even faster after a night of minus one...
      Happy Advent and stay cozy.
      Hugs,
      Mariette

  10. I like every season. All of them have something special and in autumn the leaves of the trees and the golden sun (when there is) give a special atmosphere to the environment.
