My home trees

Home is where my tree is.

The trees together look a bit like a rocket launch, especially in the fall when the maple goes golden. The Japanese maple is in my yard and the Douglas Fir is in the next door neighbor’s yard. When we moved in, 34 years ago, the Japanese maple was only about as tall as I am: 5′ 6″. We had no idea it would get this big…but, boy, do we love it, and the shade it casts on hot summer days.
