Acer (and a Haiku) October 25, 2012 by Cathy My Japanese Maple inspires me again and again! Red, gold and silver Woodsmoke hangs in the damp air Still, misty morning (Sadly the leaves have almost all fallen, so this is a photo from about two weeks ago.)

I was admiring your Japanese maple and thinking sadly that my leaves have almost all fallen, and now I see your note at the bottom . . . . alas. Love the photo with the pretty cobweb, though.
Thanks – the leaves started falling so suddenly. The ground beneath the tree is still beautiful though! 😀
What a gorgeous acer and I love the spider web hanging on it…lovely haiku too
Thank you Donna – the webs have been very visible everywhere in the recent mist we’ve had.
Thanks Gary – and nice of you to stop by! 😀
Japanese Maples have some of the loveliest fall color–no wonder you find it inspiring.
I also love the rusty colours of some beeches near us, but the maples outdo all the others!
Love your haiku . . . have not written any for ages . . . the mood and peace in life have been missing, but . . .
Well, I hope you find some peace again soon, and get inspired to write one!
Beautiful memories in words an photo. I like the dynamic of the web ~ and the red leaves (now on the ground)
Thank you Uta. 😀
Glad you like it!
You inspired me to do a few haiku too
Perfect combination a Japanese acer and a haiku. Thank you
They do go together perfectly – like cherry blossom and haiku too!
😀 Thanks Eunice!
🙂 it was so beautiful Cathy
Lovely leaves and haiku…
My red Japanese Maple is always the last to turn…and it’s just started.
Ooh, you have the pleasure yet to come! They are such beautiful trees.
Fantastic photograph! I love acer but would not attempt to grow one in my lime soil. I am enjoying sharing yours!
It’s strange, but we have very chalky, alkaline soil, and yet there was this acer and two well-established rhododendrons in the garden (which was totally neglected) when we moved here…
Very artsy picture Cathy!
Oh dear – I hope you mean “arty”!
Oh dear… What I meant to say was that your picture looks like a work of art. I´m sorry, if I invented a word again, but I was sure I´ve read it somewhere.
This is the definition I understand “artsy” to mean: http://www.collinsdictionary.com/dictionary/english/artsy
Although it can mean “arty” as well, it’s usually used in certain contexts! 😉
One of my favorite trees, they have something special in each season!
Yes, I love working near this tree in the spring – the tiny flowers have a slightly oily smell!
