I Blinked and it was Autumn

We've only been gone for five days, but the difference in our landscape is stunning. At breakfast this morning, Rose gasped and yelled, "Mom, look at our tree!" It was green a week ago, it really was, but look at it now.
We bought two Japanese Maples this summer and I was told that Acer Palmatums each do their own thing as far as Fall color. I was really hoping this pair would coordinate a bit since they'll be planted next to each other, but we've got Big Red and his brother, Mr. Brown.

Doesn't the red look great against the white and black house? I love Autumn time.

So funny how those trees turned differently. At least you got one spectacular red one instead of two matching brown ones!
