A tree.
Attachment 19277

Ahhh, but what makes this tree special you say?
I planted this tree four seasons ago and this is the first time the leaves haven't blown off as soon as they started to change to red. I've been enjoying the color change for the past two weeks. And we've had some windy days, too, so the tree must have gotten stronger.
So it's special to me

We have a tree like that out on the patio. In the summer it is a pain in the backside because there are numerous bird nests in it and it is poop, poop, poop all summer long. But in the fall, putting up with all the nuisance in the summer is worth it. It is in its full glory when the leaves turn dark red. The older it gets. the more beautiful it becomes in the fall. A great shade tree in the summer.

You certainly are right in calling them grandbeauties! They both play to the camera nicely. Hmm, budding models? Certainly are pretty enough.

And a few years later.... more feet!

These are mine, on the glass floor of the CN Tower in Toronto.
