Hanging Around


This gorgeous red maple at my church apparently decided to hang around and be a part of the holiday decorations this year.  IPC's 62nd Holiday House Tour is this weekend and features not only 5 homes but of course the beautifully decorated church sanctuary, chapel, parlor and tea in the Great Hall. Tickets may be purchased at the church or any of the homes.  Proceeds benefit so many of IPC's wonderful missions and community outreach.

how i wish i could be there for that. love this composition with the tender branch hanging so gracefully in the foreground and the suggestion of the abundance of these leaves in the reflected background.

Red maples are the artists of fall.

Yes, love the reflection. It's always a pleasant surprise when you look and get more than you bargained for... and not just in photos.

Beautifully composed, V! I would love to keep one of those Red Maple Trees, but I'm afraid it wouldn't survive the summer heat.

Brilliant adornment brightening up your world. Hard to beat that!

Beautiful shade of red for this time of year! I wonder if it might not be a sweet gum tree. They have leaves like that too.

Spectacular. It looks like a crimson waterfall.
