That is one beautiful tree. Gorgeous actually. You may need to make one of them Cheap and Dirty Leaf Rakes
We had a chance to see what all the Leaf Peepers pay a lot for hotel rooms get to see on our way to and from Cecil's. Em and I were quite impressed with the fall colours and the differences as we went from region to region on the eastern seaboard. Em was most impressed with the leaves in Massachusetts. Now remember we live in NB where the fall colours are simply outstanding, so it was going a ways for her to say that. Our back yard is still a blaze of fall colours and is really beautiful.
Stanton, got question - What do you call hard maple... ??
