Maples Afire

When I first saw the Convent, I didn’t even realise these trees were Maples. They added so much to the back aspect during summer with their thick green leaves providing a welcome shade canopy during the harsh heat.

I’ve been delighted and surprised with their transformation in Autumn. I’ve never seen leaves quite so vivid. The photos don’t do justice to just how vibrant the colour is – it looks as though they are actually lit up.
