The Maple Tree


This big maple is the dominant tree in the park that in the summer I call the “butterfly park”.
It is also the park with the croquet lawn which I’ve only rarely seen anyone use.
(The “butterfly flowerbeds” are at the other end of the park.)

Now that is what I was after yesterday. The first image is divine.
Tell me it was luck.

a beautiful tre, but i love the best of all the last photo of all those colorful leaves on the grass, they are really really pretty. I have not thought about croquet in years and years, we used to play it when i was a child. many many years. words are pilot light of memories just like photos. also we used to pile up all those pretty leaves and burn them and i got to play in the fire. what fun and back then mother had a little brownie camera and would never have thought of photographing leaves, way before digital fun

If I didn't know better, I would say you were in Vermont :)

Wonderful and beautiful shots! The maple tree is sad for me. We had one like this in our small front yard, though it was much bigger, huge. It is was one of the reasons we bought the house. Then a few years ago, we had to have it cut down because it was dying.

Thanks, all of you.
Adrian - Luck?! Call it perseverance. I walk past that tree a couple of times every week, at least!

DawnTreader's Picture Book

For this blog, I have chosen a template that allows me to show pictures as big as possible . Some of the things you usually find in the sidebar, you will find here at the bottom of the page instead - Blog Archive, Followers etc.

My camera is a Nikon Coolpix 4600.
For basic editing of most photos and collages I use Picasa 3.
Sometimes I also experiment with some more "artistic" effects in Photoshop Elements or Paint Shop Pro.
