Thought I'd better get some snaps of the maple tree in front of the house before it drops too many more leaves!
This particular variety is the Amur Maple, Acer ginnala, and is known for having vivid Fall colors, and for being a very hardy, vigorous tree.
From the inside:
And from the driveway:
And TLG helped put up some Halloween decorations. Supposed to say "HELP" in bloody letters:
And our "Anti Witch Defense System" downed it's first hostile:
-"Roger that Viper-6. Splash One Witch!"
-"Viper-6, Sierra Hotel!"
The crabapple tree has just started showing signs of color, and should be quite pretty in a week or so.
