This below is my Japanese maple. It is really pretty right now- although it is going bald on top.
We moved two years ago this Thanksgiving weekend. We started looking at houses and every house was covered inches in leaves like this. All my son saw was work raking.
I found this house today. There is a street behind the historic district and mainstreet and it says dead end. It is really secluded. This house is at the end past the no entrance sign that I went past. My daughter died when we went past the sign, then she had to roll her window down to take a photo. This house looked really old, and since it is right behind the downtown main street I assume it is authintically old- no marker, though. I love it so much. Love the porch. Love the old wood. Love the trim.
