We found a few nice red maple leaves out in the yard.
The big maple trees in the neighborhood have already dropped their seeds, but our Japanese maple trees are just getting their pretty red helicopters ready for launch.
More leaves! I think I waited too long for the Japanese maple leaves in the yard, but maybe I’ll take a couple of shots of them on the ground before raking them up.
Yay, a photo! There are a couple of trees with these extra-garish leaves on our usual walk through Rock Creek Park. Oliver isn’t very interested in stopping to look at them unless there are some hanging low enough to grab and eat.
It turns out it’s possible to walk around the yard taking photos with a baby strapped on with one of these. My lens did get groped when I wasn’t paying attention…
