This one is in the corner of our backyard.
Here's another little one, and I love the dark red leaves on it - also in our backyard.
I just love the red ones, but we we also have a beautiful green one in the backyard, too.
Last year this tree was so beautiful - also a red one - that is right outside my kitchen window. This year it seems to have bit the dust. Really hate that because I so loved looking at it several times a day.
Perhaps one of these will eventually take its place. This is my husband's little Japanese maple nursery.
The ivy in these little pots is doing really well. It is actually the same ones that grew here last year. They suffered greatly during the winter, but they didn't die. I just cut off all the old dead stuff, and they took off again. I love this little wallhanging we bought several years ago at a local nursery.
This is one of three rose bushes we have of this type. I can see this one from my kitchen window. It is just popping wtih buds.
