A favorite the world over, Japanese maple trees are treasured for their striking beauty and rich colors. Associated with balance and serenity, they are called “kito” in the Japanese language, which means “calm,” “rest” or “at peace.” In Asia, planting a Japanese maple tree in the garden symbolizes the welcoming of autumn as a friend.

I think I’ll add another to my garden. What about you?

    What a lovely neighborhood you live in, Marian! Those maples all look stunning! I have two, one bright red in the fall, the other orange/rust colored. I’m looking for a small variety that turns yellow in the fall. Which house is yours?
