This Japanese Maple was planted by my husband when he built our house in the 80’s.
Originally, it was in front of the house. When we did renovations a few years ago, it had to be moved so we could add our front porch. My husband was worried that it wouldn’t survive being transplanted. We had it put up on the bank behind the house so we could see it from the family room windows. It’s been a few seasons now, and the little tree has taken root. It is even more beautiful in it’s new home. My husband loves this tree. I am so grateful it survived and became even lovelier as it makes him so happy to see it. In the spring, we will add a small stream to the bank and it will wind down around the tree. I think the little maple is happy too.
