Japanese Maple Leaves

Japanese maple (Acer palmatum) after the rain on Sunday. The colors were so rich.

“The Japanese word “momiji” is sometimes applied to this tree in its native land. The word is said to have two meanings, both of them appropriate for the description of this wonderful tree: “baby’s hands” and “becomes crimson leaves.” Arbor Day Foundation website
