This year the colors were very bright, especially compared to last year.
We also had a small bit of snowfall which hastened the falling of the leaves. However, in the first few days the trees looked fantastic. By November 1 leaves were everywhere, but in the Moon Window my little sick dwarf maple was still hanging in there. The color looked good and I am hopeful that it might survive the transplant long term and eventually do well in this more shady location. In the meantime, the colors look wonderful when viewed through the window.
