When we first picked out our maple, I was excited when I read that the tree would turn bright red in the fall but I truly did not understand the scope of its color at the time. The deep burgundy, maroon, rust, mahogany and orange leaves are just stunning and I cannot help but feel like it stands out the most on our street against all the yellow-leaved-trees lining the block.
You might remember that ryan and I planted a new tree in our front yard this past summer to replace the one that never took from early spring. Our october glory maple has already grown more than a foot and its fall colors are absolutely beautiful right now.
This time of year is magic in my eyes and looking out my living room windows to see our october glory maple is 100% proof of that.
