RedFlowers on a Red Maple for Ruby Tuesday




. We have two very old Maple trees standing alongside our driveway

They are aflame with colour this time of year when they produce red flowers. Soon, our driveway will be carpeted with red as the flowers drop to the ground. On Sunday evening I tried to take a picture of a distant sunset while standing on our second story deck,The light from the setting sun was a wonderful backdrop for this picture and it highlighted the 'red'maple flowers.Happy Ruby Tuesday to all.

I've seen the flowers from the Maple trees here too, and they actually cast a red hue to the surroundings.
Pretty shot Ann.
