Garden Walk
of Bark & Limbs in Winter

Vine Maple

   

Vine Maple


Vine maples are native trees in our part of the world,
but as beautiful as many a fancy Japanese maple.
The first of three December photos shows
the lichen encrusted bark of the trunks.

Looking upward through the winter branches,
one can spot lots & lots of
two kinds of lichen, plus moss.

When in full leaf it's not as easy to see
the vine maple plays host to so many smaller plants.
But come winter it is just so fascinating to see stuff like this
clump of bright green moss filling in for the vanished leaves.

Of course among of the great tests for any winter garden
is how things look under snowfall. Here's a January view
of the vine maple's central trunk & limbs
as seen from our porch deck.
