We always have a Spring thread, and again one in fall. How about a thread with pictures of peoples maples, showing the flush of new growth, or the typical summer leaves? I'll kick it off: new growth on 'Simon Louis Freres', 'Mirte' foliage, Paper Bark Maple in summer, 'Candy Ice'. new growth on 'Nizetii', 'Gold Coin', Henry's Maple, 'Kinran', selected seedling, 'Variegatum'. Now I know things are never quite perfect in the summer, there's insect or sun damage, they could always look better. But we're all grownups (well some of us, presumably) so lets see some pictures warts and all!
