In the Japanese Garden we have more maples then we can count. In early November there are a few that quickly take the leap to red but most of them are a beautiful yellow-green. The pictures below were taken in the first weeks of November.
By mid November the Garden is filled with reds, oranges and yellows.
Then we reach peak week. The date fluctuates from year to year, we need warm days and cold nights. In the last few years peak week has landed on Thanksgiving weekend.
The color winds down over the next few weeks. The color technically lasts until mid December. The pictures below were taken on December 5th 2014.
