Sunday Photo: Fall is my theme

These are my Big Leaf Maples. They planted themselves here, from the helicoptering seeds they produce, back in 1996 after the Wild Fire. Once they sprouted, I babied them for the first couple years. Now they are completely adapted and all I do is have Soren groom them for me. 6” diameter and I can have maple syrup! There are three of them, the double in front counting as one.

Soon, they will be bare.

  1. Beautiful photos of your trees Kate. Fall is such a lovely time of year, love the one of the leaf. Hugs.

  2. RE: Maple syrup … FYI
    The general New England rule is one tap for a 12″ diameter maple tree. (I’ve tapped a few trees in northern NH.) However, we may not have the proper winter-freeze, spring-thaw conditions here to produce maple syrup. BTW, my favorite breakfast is a platter of pancakes with wild blueberries and maple syrup. I can probably connect you with a few New Hampshire sugar bush owners, but they may not have a supply of syrup until spring.

  3. Get ready for El Niño!! Checking my satellite images daily worldwide and We have an 88% chance of this one equaling or surpassing 83!
