Acer Tree says it’s spring

We have a beautifully awkward maple tree that sit on the south side of our yard. It has some gnarly features and would sure not win any beauty pageants. I have kept it because it provides nice shade and privacy to our master bedroom. Another nice feature are these great little red buds that appear, indicating a thankful reprieve from the winter months is soon to follow.

Odd bit of knowledge I gained today. Acer is the genus family of trees we (non bark-geeks) call maple. I wonder if there were executives in a board room in Taipei were looking for a¬†witty tree name to compete with Apple. ¬†Now you also share this bit of information. You arborists and¬†botanists¬†already knew that, didn’t you. Smart folks they is.

The sun was setting and making it a bit of a challenge to get the bark detail I was hoping for. That being the case, This marks the first image in my blog that I used a mounted flash. I used the iTTL setting for the flash. The flash I used has 2 strobes – the upper primary one and a lower ‘fill’ flash. I used both for this image.

It is the smallest of all seeds, but when it has grown it is larger than all the garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.‚Ä̬†(Matthew 13:32 ESV)
