You might remember that ryan and I planted a new tree in our front yard this past summer to replace the one that never took from early spring. Our october glory maple has already grown more than a foot and its fall colors are absolutely beautiful right now.
When we first picked out our maple, I was excited when I read that the tree would turn bright red in the fall but I truly did not understand the scope of its color at the time. The deep burgundy, maroon, rust, mahogany and orange leaves are just stunning and I cannot help but feel like it stands out the most on our street against all the yellow-leaved-trees lining the block.
This time of year is magic in my eyes and looking out my living room windows to see our october glory maple is 100% proof of that.
