the sun came out

The weather was sunny this afternoon and I thought I would post a picture of the beautiful sugar maples up the street. Backlighting is their friend! They look like a giant stained glass window, luminous.




As soon as the japanese maples in my back yard do their thing I'll post a pic of them.

We love sugar maples. (And maple sugar, but that's a different topic.)

Side-lighting works well, too.

There are just a few in my neighborhood. The city planted scads of Norways everywhere so they had to be planted by homeowners like this one or nature. I planted a couple of japanese maples in my backyard and they are just starting to turn.

And this is actually lit from the west but I was prompted to go out and take the picture after driving by the back lit wonderfulness.

As to the other topic -- I have fond memories from my Grandfather's sugar house (real VT maple syrup) and then in college when we made our own a couple of times (CT). Now I buy it and the local stuff here is very good.
