What a Tease!

Did you feel the difference Saturday morning?  I would dare to say it was actually cool outside!  Well, briefly.  Yes, the calendar still says August but if you just close your eyes and let yourself go there...

Here's a little teaser as we anticipate the fall gardening season!  Love these colors!

To the gardeners out there:  I don't know the variety of this Japanese Maple - any ideas?

  1. Japanese maples have such beautifully cut leaves. What variety do you have?

  2. They are beautiful - I enjoy the way they move in a slight breeze. I'm not sure of the variety so I've amended the post to ask any gardeners if they might know. Thanks for your comment!

  3. It was nice to feel the cooler breeze, even if it was for a short moment! Pretty photos...I'm not sure the variety.

  4. I so miss the East Coast with the leaves changing! Thank you for the reminder that there are changes here too...just more subtle!

  6. Amy - after your butterfly weed post I did end up at the nursery and bought one! Thanks for the inspiration.

    Julie - yes, definitely miss the east coast in the fall. I had my mom bring some leaves for me last time she came to texas during the fall!

    Iris - thanks for visiting my blog and for your kind words! I appreciate you stopping by :)

  7. Hi, I stopped by when Pam suggested. I love Austin bloggers. I think your Japanese maple might be 'Tamukeyama.' If so, it's a good one and can handle the heat pretty well. It also turns a lovely red in fall.

Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind.
"Pooh!" he whispered.
"Yes, Piglet?"
"Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh's paw. "I just wanted to be sure of you."
