Red Maple, Red Maple, Send Fall Over!

Late in the summer, my Red Maple turns on me.  (I first typed "turns me on" which would be a very different kind of blog, eww.)
I digress, sorry.  A red leaf here.  A red leaf there.  (See "Leaves That Taunt")

This Red Maple taunts greets me from my bedroom window each morning.
I curse at pass by this Red Maple on my way to the swagger wagon.

We have a love/hate thaaang going on.  In the spring, we will be in the love stage.  Right now, we are in the hate stage.

Meet my nemesis.

Take that!  Not so RED now are ya??
It reminds me of playing "Red rover, red rover, we dare Kerry over!"
Bring it on, Red Maple.

  1. Swoon - I heart your red maple. Don't get me wrong, I adore summer, but my Irish skin does so not-at-all-not-one-little-bit. And it acts like a brat every time the temps push, let's say, above 85. So basically I have just gone through the past 115 days 23 hours and roughly 18 minutes tied to summer swear monkey (not on my back - on my skin). Ugh. Drinking helps. ;)

  2. At least you don't have a gingko tree with its lovely, smelly fruit droppings. Cheers!

  3. A different kind of blog indeed! Thanks for the laugh :) and I like the maple, once you learn to love fall it becomes really wonderful...come to the dark side Kerry...we're waiting for you ;)
