The Maple must be one of the most photographed trees in the fall.
It goes through such beautiful change.
A display of color ranging from light greens to yellows,
oranges and the deepest of reds.
This fall, here in New England,
we got to see the trees fully dressed with green leaves
-and covered in snow.
At the same time!
Their branches were not strong enough
to hold the weight of the heavy snow that their grand leaves caught.
As you can see from the left picture below,
the Maples turned to "weeping" Maples.
Many deciduous trees lost branches in the October snow storm.
Some trees even split in half.
(100s of thousands lost their power due to trees falling on to power lines.)
We have a Norwegian Maple in our front yard
that my husband planted about five years ago.
Several times during the snow storm,
we went outside to shake the branches off.
Our work paid off.
I am happy to say that the Maple didn't loose a single limb.
And neither did our beautiful birch.
Also during that crazy October weather weekend,
my husband left the house early one morning
and came back with a puppy.
My question to you is...
Can you guess what kind of puppy dog we now are happy (and tired) owners to?
One hint, the bread has a New England city as part of its name.
